Latest report from GPOne. I think the 'not improving' bit is more clickbait shit as I don't see any quotes from actual doctors or reasons as to why he is not improving. But it does mention he is not operable at the moment according to the doctor that runs the hospital press office.

Thoughts & prayers with Nicky & his family.

They induce a coma whenever there is swelling on the brain. They did it to my daughter when she was hit on a pedestrian crossing many years ago. She was fine in the end, but this looks even more serious. Get well soon buddy.

Unhappy

How fucked up is this?. Dude races 200 mph bikes for 20 years and is on his death bed over a freakin bicycle. Gutted for Nick and family, can only pray that he can pull through and have a normal life after racing.

Hopefully he will be awake and able to walk on his own two feet eventually.
Let's not play the Schumi card just yet!

About all we know is that he got whacked in the head and has been placed in an induced coma. He could wake up tomorrow with a splitting headache (and, of course, the severe internal injuries), or die, or.....
Hopefully, some real news will be forthcoming soon.

In the meantime, remember Richard Hammond, who was in a coma for two weeks following his jet-car crash, and then went on to a near-complete recovery. It's far too soon to be speculating.

Jumkie, I'd be happy to PP a few bucks if you (Nicky's biggest fan) wanted to take up a collection and send him and his family some flowers or whatever.

Very saddened to hear this, Nicky is huge reason why I started following MotoGP in the first place. Seems like a stand up guy by all accounts, I hope he pulls through

Just got home from work after a shit day and read this, so the day gets even more shit really.

Absolute best wishes to Nicky for a successful and full recovery and also to his family whom I wish all the best and support at this time.

Holy shit, how sad ... I feel really sorry for him and his family. Those push bikes are fucking dangerous. Some of those bicycles get up to 90 or 100kph ... if you are doing those sort of speeds on a motorcycle you'd want to be wearing a proper helmet and protective gear like jacket maybe some kevlar jeans /boots ... and even then you will still get injured in a bingle with a car.

Cyclists wear lycra shorts and a polystyrene helmet ... I mean they don't really have the odds stacked up in their favour when they get hit by a 1.5 ton car. Praying for the guy!
