Irwin OUT of the Nations!
In a huge blow for team Ireland, Graeme Irwin will not take part in the rest of the event after crashing on lap two of practice.
Irwin suffered a dislocated shoulder and has been forced to withdraw from the event, meaning he won’t get to show the world his speed in 2016.
It was already a bad start for the team when they drew last gate pick and it now leaves Martin Barr and Stuart Edmonds to fly the flag and try and make the A final.
*Update* According to Stuart Edmonds, a brave Graeme Irwin will endure the pain and try and ride in the B final tomorrow in a bid to get Ireland through to the A final. The man is hard as nails!
