Michael Dunlop has confirmed he sustained a broken pelvis and some other fractures in his big crash at the Southern 100 on Thursday.
Dunlop was chasing down Dean Harrison in the Island Aggregate Senior when he was spat off his S1000RR at Castletown Bridge.
Various conflicting reports as to his injuries were flying around, but after being discharged, the 30-year-old TT great defiantly Tweeted: ”After breaking my pelvis and multiple breaks and bruises, back on my feet,” accompanied by a picture of him indeed on his feet but supported by a frame.
It is the latest in series of setbacks suffered by Dunlop this year. He survived, but not without injury, a spectacular crash when performing well in the Donegal International Rally in June and a wrist injury at Kirkistown when testing prior to the North West.
