Injured Rowe vows Manx GP return

In Manx Grand Prix, News, Roads

ROAD racer Royce Rowe has vowed to return to the Manx Grand Prix after a serious smash at this year’s races landed him in a wheelchair.

The Australian recently flew back home to Adelaide after nearly three months of rehab on the Isle of Man following an accident at the Union Mills section during the MGP Junior race.

Rowe was forced wide at the fast left-hander, and ended up hitting and snapping a telegraph pole – his Triumph 675 obliterated in the process.

And despite the trauma, he say he’ll be back on two wheels as soon as he can escape the confines of his wheelchair.

“As soon as I can ride again, I’ll be back on the bike,” he told UK Clubsport. “My bones are healing quickly and I’ll be up and out of the wheelchair in no time.”

“The goal is to be riding in February when our season starts up again here in Australia, and then we’ll have to save up our pennies again to get back over to the Manx, which should hopefully be in 2019.”
