GUY MARTIN was lucky to escape with minor cuts and bruises after a big crash in the first Supersport race at the NW200.

Tyco Suzuki's Martin lost the front of his GSX-R600 on the run along the Coast Road between the Railway Bridge and Black Hill. Team boss Philip Neill made the decision to sideline Martin for the rest of the NW200 races, after the Lincolnshire man took a heavy blow to his head.

The popular road racing star said: “I’m disappointed to miss out on the meeting and pretty frustrated as I didn’t feel I was doing anything wrong when I tucked the front, even though the bike does get a bit unsettled through that bumpy section. I had a really stiff neck after the crash and I had taken a bit of a battering so it was best to sit it out. I’ll be grand for the TT.”
