Injury update: Glenn McCormick!
Unfortunately the new year didn’t get off to the best of starts for Glenn McCormick who was taking part in an evo race at St John’s point. Unfortunately, he caught and twisted his leg going around a corner.
Glenn missed most of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL without even crashing at the first round of the Irish Championship. He just got back on the bike at the end of last year but unfortunately broke his fibula and tibia in January. Some good news is that he didn’t need to undergo another operation.
McCormick needed to wear a cast for six weeks but he got that off last week so the recovery is going well. It was looking like he might miss the start of the season but he might just make it back in time now which is good news. After missing out on the Irish and Ulster titles in 2016 he will be motivated to grab at least one title this year. It’s a shame he has missed most of the pre-season to this injury as he won’t come into the season quite as prepared but it shouldn’t take him too long to run at the front again.
Glenn McCormick: “It was a clean break at the joint of my tib and fib. At first it looked like surgery but luckily I got away without surgery which was good and I was only in cast for six weeks. I got my cast off last Thursday, at the moment I’m not to sure when I’ll get back on bike but hopefully not too long, as you could probably guess I can’t wait as it’s been quite sometime since I was behind the gate!”.
