Crash riders recovering

Two newcomers to the TT are nursing their injuries after practice session crashes.

Belgian rider Laurent Hoffman, whose coming off at Barregarrow last night stopped the practice, is serious but stable in Noble's.

A message on Facebook from his team says Hoffman has two broken femurs, which were operated on last night - one has been pinned and one screwed.

Sidecar passenger Milan Vogel, also a newcomer, has been taken back to the Czech Republic to continue his recuperation.

Meanwhile, the travelling marshal who came off on Saturday on the Mountain Road, Paul Hunt, is showing improvement.

He's in a UK hospital, where his condition is described as serious but stable.
