26 May 2012

Provec Racing has confirmed Joan Lascorz has been transferred to the Guttmann Institute in Barcelona to continue the rehabilitation from his injuries.

The Spaniard had spent 40 days in Vall d'Hebron Hospital following his horrific accident during World Superbike testing at Imola in which he sustained serious spinal injuries, with Provec Racing recently confirming Lascorz has 'no feeling in the legs or abdominal area'.

In addition, Provec Racing has launched an initiative in support of Kawasaki rider Lascorz, and will ask all teams and riders set to 'Power for Lascorz' stickers in both World Superbike and MotoGP.

“Joan Lascorz was transferred to the Guttmann Institute on Monday May 14 after 40 days spent in the Hospital Vall d'Hebron. On arrival at the Guttmann Institute Joan spent a few days adjusting to the upright position of the chair after so many days in bed, as symptoms of dizziness and risk of fainting are common.

“He has already begun working with physiotherapists on a routine that is expected to last a minimum of 4 months.

“The team wish to thank everyone again for all the support that Joan has received in this period from riders and teams of both MotoGP and WSBK as well as the press in general.

"Lascorz', which has garnered consensus and encouragement from all parties.

“Provec wish to continue this initiative and would like to have the participation of all riders and teams again from the races in Misano (WSBK) and Montmeló (MotoGP) until the final race of the season, by asking them to place the sticker somewhere on the bike or the equipment of the team.

“The sticker will be distributed in the Paddock at Misano and Montmeló.”
