1 of 1

Ivan Lintin remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital after last week’s Southern 100 crash.

The Lincoln rider was involved in the four-bike incident during Thursday’s 600 challenge race that tragically claimed the life of James Cowton.

Lintin was airlifted to Nobles before being transferred to Liverpool, where he underwent surgery on his leg and ankle on Friday. According to his Dafabet Devitt Racing team, this procedure was a success.

“The team went to see Ivan today, and although there are positive signs he still remains critical but stable,” said a team statement on Sunday. “His family would like to thank each and every one of you for your messages of support. Hopefully we can bring you some more news soon.”

The other two riders involved in the incident, Jamie Coward and Mikey Evans, have both been discharged from Nobles hospital.

Tom Robinson and Brian Fruidge, who were involved in separate incidents, have both been described as stable.
