    Roads racing ace John McGuinness has revealed that he has had a set-back in his recovery from the broken leg he sustained in an accident at last year’s North West 200.

    The 23-time TT winner, who recently signed for Norton after years of racing for Honda, broke his right tibia and fibular last year when he was thrown from his Honda Fireblade at the North West 200 course following a problem with the machine’s ECU.

    He had been making good progress in his recovery and was hoping to get his first ride on the Norton SG7 V4-RR this month, but he has revealed he’s suffered a ‘set-back’ – on Twitter he posted: “Not sure what to say, unfortunately my leg has had a bit of a set-back. Sorry I’ve not said sooner, I’ve just been trying to get my head around it all first. To say I’m gutted is an understatement.”
