2015 INDOOR: Read supreme in U19 final
Stockport’s Jake Read is the new U19 Indoor champion, going through the card unbeaten in a final that was marred by a horrific injury to Sheffield’s Niall Morton.
Read was in fine form throughout taking a deserved win, ahead of Brandon Whetton in second and U16 champion Will Tidball finishing third.
The best part of an hour’s delay came in heat 13, as Niall Morton appeared to run over his own ankle coming off the first bend in a freak accident.
It looks like a very bad dislocation and probable break to his right ankle and will more than likely see the Sheffield rider out for a decent proportion of the 2016 season.
Morton was transferred to Umiversity Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by ambulance for further treatment.
We wish Niall all the best with his recovery.
Racing continued after Morton received an ovation from the onlookers, with Jake Read going on to win the title.
