Unfortunate news today, as we get word that Kenny Noyes has been airlifted from the Motorland Aragon circuit, after sustaining a serious accident during the warm-up session for the CEV Superbike round at the Spanish circuit.
The Spanish-born American racer was taken to a hospital in Zaragoza, and currently is being kept in a medically induced coma. According to initial reports, Noyes appears to have collided with another rider on the track at Turn 8, and then hit the tire wall.
Reports say that Noyes lost consciousness during the crash, and that the medical team at the track put Noyes in a medically induced coma. According to a press release by the team, a blood clot was found in Noyes’ head at the hospital, though doctors believe that it will be re-absorbed by the body.
As such, Noyes is expected to be kept in the coma until tomorrow. Though the prognosis is naturally reserved, his condition is listed as stable.
Our best thoughts go out to Kenny and his family, and we hope for a speedy and full recovery.
