As most people attending the first meeting of the 2019 season (Marks Tey on 17th March), will know, Chris Hardy had a particularly dramatic crash on his Montessa Cappra 250 while running in the Pre74 Class. After leaving the ground on one of the jumps, his fork bottoms and front wheel left company with his bike! Chris was immediately attended by the on-track medics before the ambulance service took over and whisked him off to Colchester Hospital.
His brother, Ed, who was riding in the same race, has since got in touch with an update on Chris’s condition.
Hi all. I'm happy to be able to update you on Chris Hardy's (No. 278) condition today. He did break a couple of vertebrae in his neck with potentially serious consequences, but the excellent trackside care and subsequent hospital care at Colchester and Ipswich hospitals means he's going to make a full recovery. He had an operation yesterday to pin the worst of the two breaks, and I spoke to him post op and he's in great spirits. He opened one eye, looked at me and said 'Have you booked Maylandsea?', which is a great sign!
The whole family want to thank the Pre65 Club, the superb trackside medics and the great trauma teams at Colchester and Ipswich for keeping him safe and fixing him up. And big thanks also to Dave Austin for coming to visit him in hospital, Chris really appreciated it.
See you at Maylandsea, thanks again.
