BBC Sport - Franck Petricola prepares for North West 200 return

Petricola set for North West return

French rider Franck Petricola is set to race at the North West 200 next month despite suffering life-threatening injuries in a practice crash at Primrose Hill last year.

Petricola, 31, suffered multiple fractures and a head injury as a result of the crash and was in a coma for several days.

The Frenchman was flown home after the meeting but made a full recovery and raced at Scarborough last weekend.
