Video: On-board lap of the NW200

But never mind that. Get well soon, Stuart Easton

Watch this video and marvel at the utter dedication and bravery required to ride the NW200 Triangle Circuit. This is shot from a 600 Supersport bike so the speeds are considerably lower than Stuart Easton clocked last year on his superbike. 204mph was his fastest trap-time in 2010.

It looked like Easton was on course to run at the front of the pack this year, too. However, a fall on his first Superstock lap of this morning's practice session at the fearsomely quick Station Corner has left the on-form Scot with severe pelvic injuries which are being operated on tonight at Belfast hospital.

Easton is currently lying third in the BSB series on his MSS Colchester Kawasaki ZX-10R superbike. 

A heartfelt 'get well soon' Stuart, from all of us at Visordown.
