He said: ďI was riding well on the stage and making good progress until the crash. I was in a gully and there was a stationary Quad in front of me. Just as I went to pass him, he fired across my path. I tried to avoid him but must have caught it with my foot peg and ended up cartwheeling down the gully.
ďIíve been to the medical centre for X-rays and have been told that Iíve got a serious compression on my spine and Iíve been told not to ride. The plan is to carry on working on my bike so that itís ready and see if itís possible tomorrow. I canít believe my luck, but I guess itís one of those things.Ē
