The Kawasaki Racing Team has issued the following update regarding seriously injured World Superbike star Joan Lascorz, who suffered damage to his vertebra during a testing accident at Imola on Monday:

“After a crash during a scheduled testing session at Imola on Monday 2 April, Kawasaki Racing Team rider Joan Lascorz is now continuing his recovery in Spain, at the Valle Hebron hospital in Barcelona.

“He is undergoing further checks and treatment for the injuries he suffered to his C6 vertebra.

It's so strange that even though you don't know the person, you get so emotionally involved! It is just to do with the fact that these lads provide us with the excitement and enjoyment we love, so when something like this happens, it is so tragic and I think we all feel a real stab in the heart!! Stay positive everybody!!!!!

I'm sorry to hear that the damage was to the C6 and not the T6 vertebra, as previously reported. Of course the prognosis would be somewhat more optimistic had the injury been lower down the spine. That said it's clearly pointless to speculate any further at the moment, so we can only send our best wishes to Joan and continue to hope for the best possible recovery for him.
