Mike Kras suffers multiple injuries in practice accident

woensdag 23 april 2014

Mike Kras of the Beursfoon Rockstar Energy Suzuki has suffered multiple injuries in a practice accident in Eersel, the Netherlands yesterday. An amateur rider crashed right behind a jump. Because nobody was standing on top of the jump to give Mike a sign that somebody was fallen, Mike jumped right on top of this rider.


Todd Waters and Max Nagl were riding right behind Mike and both riders were landing on top of Mike and the amateur rider. The current leader in the Dutch Open Championship Series was transported to the hospital were the doctors noticed a broken neck, vertebra and a punctured lung.


Due to fact that these were all "clean"fractures, there was no need for an operation. Mike also has feeling in all his extremities and shows no signs of paralysis.


At this moment it is unclear how long his revalidation period will be. The complete Beursfoon Rockstar Energy Suzuki Team would like to wish Mike a speedy recovery.
