I was paralysed in a road accident 30 years ago and while I sympathise with Joan he competed in a dangerous sport and whilst we want to make the sport as safe as possible his comments about the FIM and circuits being partly to blame just smack of the health and safety culture that either stops people putting these events on the sport being banned because its too dangerous,hope Joan has a happy and fulfilled life as I have had.

Been a fan of Joan Lascorz since I first saw him in supersport.  Always seemed quiet and humble, and also very fast.  I was very much saddened when I heard about his crash.  Such a shame...I know he would still be battling with the top riders.  Best wishes to you, Joan.  And thanks to MCN for this article.  I've been wondering about his progress for awhile but heard little news until now.
