Stuart Easton has suffered multiple injuries after an accident in during practice for the Relentless International North West 200 in Northern Ireland today.

The incident occurred at Station Road and also involved his teammate Gary Mason, who escaped uninjured.

The MSS Colchester Kawasaki team issued a statement confirming that the 27 year old “has been transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast to undergo an operation with injuries to his femur, pelvis, hand and a suspected bowel injury.”

“The MSS Colchester Kawasaki squad and Kawasaki Motors UK would like to thank the many well-wishers and extend their full support to Stuart and his family in this difficult time.”

Easton had been enjoying an exceptional season in British Superbikes where he is just six points off the championship lead, and Team Owner Nick Morgan admits it is a huge blow for both rider and team.

“We're so desperately upset for Stuart, he is one of the nicest, unassuming guys in the paddock, regardless of talent and he has that in abundance”, he said. “He's been in fantastic form and this is obviously a massive blow to him and all his friends in the team and beyond. We wish him the very best recovery and will try and keep his supporters updated as regularly as possible.”

The Checkered Flag will have more news on Easton's condition as soon as it becomes available.
