Hedger survives nasty accident
YATE'S Luke Hedger spent the afternoon in the medical centre after being hit by a fellow competitior at the Monster Energy Motostar British Championship race at Knockhill.
Despite fears that he may have sustained a broken leg and wrist in the accident, x-rays confirmed he had sustained only heavy sprains.
Poor tyre choice on a drying track meant that Hedger started the race in eighth place, but was confident of improving his position during the fray.
And on the green light on Sunday, Hedger quickly moved up the rankings and was lying fourth overall.

Hedger found himself with a large gap up to Kyle Ryde, who was running in third, and the race became a procession as the first four circulated at the same pace with Bradley Ray leading Jordan Weaving, Kyle Ryde and Hedger. However, the pace car came out on lap 14 forcing the riders to bunch up after two riders went down in separate incidents on the track.
As the riders toured around behind the pace car there was considerable confusion as back markers held up Hedger's attempts to catch up. He finally did catch up after the second pace car lap, but this was as far as he progressed. While exiting the hairpin on the first flying lap after the pace car laps, Weaving launched himself over his handlebars, leaving both Ray and Hedger with no where to go.
Hedger was catapulted off his 22 machine after hitting Ray's machine and landed heavily in the gravel trap. The positive from all of this was that Hedger remains at the top of the championship table with a four-point lead.
