Bikers injured on dirt circuit

TWO people were seriously injured in separate crashes at the Nowra and District Motorcycle Club’s Yerriyong complex at the weekend.

At 2.10pm on Saturday, a 24-year-old Rosebery man from Sydney was knocked unconscious for a short time when he came off his bike.

Police said the man was going through a series of sharp bumps on the dirt track known as stutters and was unable to take the next corner, hit a berm and became airborne before landing on the track.

The man was treated at the scene by paramedics and flown by the Ambulance Rescue helicopter to St George Hospital with minor head injuries, a broken collarbone and as a precaution for possible spinal injuries.

On Sunday morning an 11-year-old boy suffered a fractured lower leg when he came off his bike while competing at the track.
