Laverty crashes out in Thailand thumbnail

TOOME racer Eugene Laverty has been put out of action after a horrific crash left him with a broken bone in his pelvis.
He was taking part in the second World Superbike Race in Thailand on Sunday when he slid off during the fourth lap and was struck from behind by Spain's Jordi Torres.
There was initially great concern for the Milwaukee Aprilia rider after he was 'unable to feel his feet', team boss Shaun Muir revealed.
However, the feeling later returned and it was discovered that the 31-year-old had sustained a broken right hand side pubic ramus bone.
The local rider will now require an 'intensive recuperation period' but it is understood that he will not need to undergo surgery.
