Already in the trainings of the NorthWest200 John McGuinness had an accident. At first it was considered only a broken leg. Unfortunately, it turned out that also 3 ribs and four vertebrae fracture broke.

The fracture on the right leg also turned out to be somewhat more complicated. Fixing with a plate was not possible. An external fixator was needed, so a support system which is largely outside of the leg. Parts of it are fixed by the skin to the bone in order to guarantee a correct bone position. It is assumed that the fixator must remain on the leg for 6 weeks.
