Brett McCormick, who fractured two vertebrae in the huge crash he suffered on Sunday at Assen, will make a full recovery, according to updates on the Canadian's website posted by his father last night and earlier today. McCormick is recovering well, and will be moved to either Italy or Canada, before being assessed whether any surgery is required to stabilize his fractured vertebrae. Below is the update posted on McCormick's website:

We are still at Assen hospital, but Brett will be able to transport in a day or two.
We will then travel to Italy and/or home to Canada.
If Brett requires surgery it will be at that time.
He's in good spirits and Lucca (engineer) is with us.
Thanks again for all the positive support!
Brett really appreciates it!!!

Thanks for all the well wishes everybody!
Brett is sleeping comfortably and will be assesed tomorrow, to see if surgery is necessay to stabilize his C5.
Other than that a broken thumb and assorted bruises etc (two black eyes).
He was lucky and will be making a full and speedy recovery.
I would like to thank Shoei and Alpinestars for doing an awesome job and keeping this from being much worse.
Have to add how unbelievably supportive the Effenbert-Liberty team has been, feels like family. The best.
And a huge thank you to all the track side & medical centre staff for their time & attention to Brett following his crash.
