Joan Lascorz is still being kept in the Intensive Care unit at the Vall d'Hebron Hospital in Barcelona. The Spanish rider was the victim of a serious crash during official testing at Imola on April 2 in which he suffered damage to the C6 vertebra, leading to a lengthy and delicate operation to reposition his spine at Bologna's Maggiore Hospital. Lascorz was then transferred back home to Spain. With doctors still evaluating the situation regarding the possibility of Lascorz recovering his mobility, a press release was issued by the Provec Racing team yesterday, saying that vital support systems would be removed today to allow the Spanish rider to breathe autonomously.
