A rider has been taken to hospital after a crash at the Ulster Grand Prix.

The incident, at the Joey's Windmill Section of the course on the fourth lap of the opening Superstock class, led to racing being halted.

One rider involved was taken to hospital with the other reported to be "up and walking" after the crash.

Dean Harrison was declared the winner after holding a narrow advantage from earlier leader Peter Hickman when the race was halted.

Conor Cummins took third with Davey Todd, Lee Johnston and Paul Jordan completing the top six.

The leaders had just completed their fourth lap when the race was red flagged.

Harrison set a new Superstock lap record on the lap two.

The meeting did resume after more than an hour's delay as Hickman clinched a dominant eight-second Supersport victory over Harrison but another red flag incident then led to the opening Superbike race being halted after lap one with Harrison again duelling at the front with Hickman.
