LEIGH Lanham has spoken for the first time about the crash that left him unconscious and with a badly damaged hand at Foxhall Stadium in the opening meeting of the season last month.

“I was not left with any room to race,” said Lanham. “Us old guys have respect for other riders, but we don't always get it back. People are putting lives at risk. But the season goes on and it is over now. No one goes out there to hurt anyone.”

The Witches skipper is expected to be back in a month but wants to ensure he is fully fit before returning.
