AN OUTLAW motorcycle club member lost control of his bike on his club's annual run to Sydney.

On Thursday about 11:20am one of the Rebels MC members hit some gravel and lost control.

Coolangatta police Sergeant Steve Quinn said the crash was due to driver error.

"He had a suspected fractured ankle," he said.

The rider was taken to hospital by ambulance from the scene while the rest of the convoy continued on to Sydney.

The crash occurred on the M1 south bound near exit 95, just near the New South Wales border.

A Queensland police spokesman said the riders were escorted to the Queensland/NSW border by police.

Officers from different regions and the State's outlaw task force made up the escort team for "road safety issues."
