The Harder Times of Motorcycle Racing

April 23rd, 2012

With the weather at Assen being so unpredictable there were many incidents, one of the worst involving fellow Effenbert Liberty rider Brett McCormick. Brett injured his fifth finger, both eye sockets and fractured both his fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae – it appears that there has been no neurological damage so Brett has been transferred to another hospital to assess how to best stabilize his injuries.

Kawasaki rider, Joan Lascorz who was hurt at Imola is still struggling to overcome his injuries. His team manager, Guim Roda released the following statement on Friday:

“Our communication is brief and cautious because of the severity of the injury, uncertainty about the chances of recovery and because time has stopped for us. Now the changes and improvements are measured in weeks rather than days.”Now, the first and most important thing is to stabilize Joan so he can start his recovery, remove tracheotomy so he can speak fluently, then together with him we will plan his recovery and the communication process. In terms of the reasons for the accident and the reasons that caused the injury, at least two months will pass before the first accurate information will be released.”Let me remind you the great loss we’ve all had, each and every passionate enthusiast in the motorbike world, regarding 2012’s largest untapped talent. A pilot destined to make history, old school, with effort and tenacity, to carve his way without gifts or favours or media plaudits, quietly, little by little. At 27 years of age he had wrought out the best bases to carry out his dreams, like all those who have passion and the tenacity to achieve their goals. Now we’ll see how far we can get, and if this crash has been a stumbling block or a shift in goals, dreams, our dreams… You cannot imagine how much hidden talent lies in the ICU of the Vall d’Hebron Hospital.”
