Speaking about this topic, the Padgetts Racing rider stated:

“Everything is good but the injury just needs more time to heal. I could come to the North West and ride round but I want to be competitive and win races.”

He went onto add:

“I am disappointed but it is better not to disrupt the healing process.”
