Thanks... Stay Strong Nicky!

Having some experience of head injuries there is little doubt in my mind that Nicky's recovery will be largely down to his character and the medical care he receives. The latter I assume Honda, his insurers, and family have secured. He now needs luck and good genes. The other injuries may well, in racing terms, be secondary, and I hope so. If caring and prayers count for anything he has as much support as he needs. I do so hope he can gather his energies and win this battle, and still be the same Nicky we have all benefitted from.

So sorry to hear such bad news regarding Nicky. One of our sports true gentleman. He is very strong, very fit & very tough mentally and physically. He has the best chance of recovery. Hope he makes it. I am crying just like you.
