Ian Hutchinson’s Crash in the Isle of Man TT 2017 Senior Race

16 time TT winner Ian Hutchinson unfortunately crashed out of the 2017 Pokerstars Senior TT at 27th Milestone of the Mountain Course on Friday 9th June 2017 and in doing so fractured his left femur.

Michael Dunlop went on to win a shortened PokerStars Senior TT race with the Bennetts Suzuki rider taking his 15th TT victory by 13.3s from Peter Hickman and Dean Harrison.

The restarted race was run over four laps after the original race was red flagged on the second lap due to the incident above. involving 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson at the 27th Milestone.

The Tyco BMW rider suffered a fractured femur and I wish him a speedy recovery and a speedy return to the TT.

Just today Hutchy tweeted a photograph of his front tyre (captured by @manxathlete) – it seems explain an awful lot…
