Pearson continues to make good progress following Czech crash

Local motorcycle rider Michael Pearson is continuing to make good progress towards his road to recovery after his serious accident in the Czech Republic’s Horice Road Races.

Michael, who underwent an operation on his lower back last Wednesday is hopeful to be returned to Northern Ireland later this week, where it is expected that he will be admitted to the Royal Victoria Hospital.

First indications are that his back operation has been a success, and according to Doctor Havel in the Hradec Kralove Hospital in the Czech Republic, Michael should make a full recovery in due course.

It was first thought that Michael had also a broken hip, but further scans last week have been inconclusive, and it is believed that there are no fractures in his hip.

Michael, his wife Diane, his parents, Team members, and all at NEI Motorsports, have been overwhelmed by the gestures of good will, and kind donations to Michael’s recovery fund.
