RUMOURS DOING the rounds in the BSB paddock that a broken handlebar was the cause of Glen Richards' femur-breaking Knockhill crash have been firmly denied by his team.

The wreckage of the HM Plant Honda was given a thorough examination by the team and a failure of the handlebar has been ruled out.

Havier Beltran, Team Manager of the HM Plant squad said: "We have looked at the bike and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the handlebars on the bike. We will be carrying out a full check on all aspects of the bike as routine while we repair the damage, this is part of our normal post-crash procedure."
