Sadly not the case EB.

Fabrice Miguet has suffered "unsurvivable injuries" and is on life support.

I can only assume he is being kept alive for the sake of family travelling from his native France, as that's a very blunt statement.

The 2018 Ulster GP has been weather hampered again. After all, only 3 full races could be held and the fourth (lightweight/ultra lightweight) had been abandoned after one lap but saw victors in both classes declared.

During the superstock race, Davey Todd was injured in an incident involving a spectator with a selfie stick, who apparently hung out the stick too far. Makes we wonder though, since at TT and other road races selfie sticks are banned and will be confiscated by the marshals if the person in question does not refrain from using it.

In the same race, Frenchman Fabrice Miguet suffered unsurvivable injuries following another incident and succumbed to them yesterday.
Ride in peace, Fabrice. It was an honour to meet you in the TT paddock. I'll never forget about meeting you and these bottles of wine you had always outside your awning, for the interested spectator to taste over a chat or some friendly banter.
