Maxima BMW rider hospitalised after multi-rider incident at The Bend.
Triple champion Glenn Allerton is undergoing medical evaluation in Murray Bridge tonight after a heavy crash in race one of the Motul Pirelli Australian Superbike Championship round at The Bend.
The experienced Maxima BMW rider was collected by Suzuki-mounted Alex Phillis in a two-rider crash on lap one this afternoon, causing a red-flag in the process.
Allerton was hospitalised following the contact made by Phillis, tonight confirming he has suffered a break to his right wrist that will also sideline him for tomorrow’s pair of ASBK races.
With round four of the season over two months away, scheduled for Morgan Park between 5-7 July, Allerton has time on his side in recovery. That round may also potentially mark the new generation S 1000 RR’s debut in Queensland.
