Joan Lascorz Injury Update

Cycle News Staff | April 3, 2012

Kawasaki World Superbike racer Joan Lascorz underwent six hours of surgery last night in Italy to repair the damage to his back following his crash during yesterday’s World Superbike test at Imola, the site of Sunday’s World Superbike races.

The surgery was to repair a broken vertebra that had moved. The 28-year-old Spaniard is currently in the Hospital Maggiore di Bologna, but he will be relocated to Spain as soon as his doctors feel he can be.

The team is expected to release a statement regarding Lascorz’ condition later today.
