BMW Motorrad WorldSBK rider, Tom Sykes, has to remain in the hospital for further observation after suffering a severe concussion.
The British rider was involved in an accident during Race 2 in Barcelona and taken to the medical centre for assessment before being sent to the Barcelona hospital for further evaluation.
In a new development, BMW Motorrad has revealed that the 36-year-old rider will need to remain in the hospital for further examinations.
“We are in constant contact with Tom.
“He is in good spirits and is back to his usual self, cracking jokes. We are delighted that he has come through this accident relatively well. He remains under observation due to the severe concussion, but no further injuries have been determined.
“We now have to wait and see what this coming weekend will look like. We will provide more information as soon as we get it.
“We would like to thank the track marshals, the medical staff at the circuit and in the hospital, and everyone who helped Tom so well after his accident and who are continuing to help him,” said Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director.
As things stand, Sykes will likely discharge from the hospital on Wednesday.
