Isle of Wight speedster Ryan Whitehall has his sights set on a quick return to road racing, having spent the winter months recovering from injuries sustained last year at Armoy during an incident on the final lap of the Junior Support race.
Prior to his misadventure at Armoy, Whitehall captured the imagination of various real roads fans witnessing his all-action style at Oliver’s Mount and Cookstown.
Determined to get back to enjoying two-wheel action on closed roads courses, he recently stated he has another appointment soon with surgeons, regarding aforementioned injuries and whether the current frame positioned on his leg can be removed.
Pending this being a success, allied to all going to plan, his 2022 race season itinerary will include tackling as many Irish road races as possible plus sampling the returning Southern 100.
True grit, boundless determination, never, never ever giving in are ways to describe lots of roads competitors.
All of the above showcased phrases are relevant and some to WR Racing’s Whitehall.
Despite major challenges faced post the incident at Armoy, he has kept a positive, up-beat frame of mind and maintained the ambitious nature that made him first turn his attentions to the real roads scene.
