Bardney biker Ivan Lintin’s race weekend came to an abrupt halt in Northern Ireland at the weekend.

Ivan started well enough at the Ulster Grand Prix on Thursday evening when the RC Express Racing rider took eighth place in the Dunrod 150 Superbike race. He also lapped in excess of 131mph, the first time he has broken the magical 130mph barrier.

But Saturday did not go to plan when Ivan crashed while taking part in the Superstock race. He was taken to hospital for checks but then discharged later that evening and returned home.

He will be back in action for the classic TT at the end of the month, followed by the Gold Cup meeting at Oliver’s Mount.
