Kawasaki releases new Lascorz update

Joan Lascorz is kept under sedation over the weekend as doctors continue to assess his condition before confirming the extent of his injuries.
Kawasaki Provec Racing has released a new statement regarding the condition of its rider Joan Lascorz following his serious accident during World Superbike testing at Imola just over a week ago.

“Joan Lascorz remains in the Intensive Care Trauma Unit of the Vall d'Hebron hospital in Barcelona.

“On the morning of Friday April 6 doctors began to wake Joan Lascorz, but on Saturday decided to sedate him again to keep him asleep. Mucus was still present in the lungs and the fact that Joan was moving a lot, meant that the doctors decided to keep him asleep for another four days until the lungs are completely free of mucus.

“Until the doctors wake Joan and the neurologists are able to gather the relevant evidence, the exact extent of the injury and his chances of recovery cannot be established.

“Joan's family, the team and the whole Provec Kawasaki family would like to give their thanks for the thousands of messages of support received and the interest expressed by other riders, friends, media and fans.

“The next release from the team will only be issued when there is some up-to-date news about the health of Joan Lascorz.

“Meanwhile, from today, Joan Lascorz's Facebook profile will carry updates about his situation every morning.”

Lascorz was injured during post-even testing at Imola, the Spaniard suffering serious neck and back injuries.
