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.

The 27-year-old Spanish rider had an operation to relocate his vertebra at the Maggiore Hospital in Italy and the final extent of any neurological injuries he may have suffered are not currently clear and will not be fully known until the swelling around the affected area reduces.

All those in the Kawasaki Racing Team and the entire Kawasaki family would like to thank the many people, teams and organisations that have sent messages of support and best wishes to Joan and his loved ones at this difficult time.
