The Lady Polita Onlus will benefit other people in the future in need for help. The young rider will undergo a difficult rehabilitation period after the diagnosed paralysis below the chest.
Ôhe popular female Italian rider was carried to the hospital where several fractures were diagnosed with the most important that of the 12th vertebrae of the backbone. Unfortunately the spinal cord has also suffered some damage. Our best wishes to Alessia.
A statement from the hospital today (2013/6/16) defines paralysis for the young athlete. The crash occurred at the same turn that Wayne Rainey crashed in 1993 with the same outcome for him, although the riding direction on the track has been reversed since then.
In the case of Randy Mamola, he was riding the Ducati Desmosedici Biposto with a pillion at the Catalunya track. These Ducati promotional rides for the selected pillions are performed by Randy Mamola and Franco Battaini.
Only the pillion was injured by the crash, he sustained a fractured wrist. However in cases like these the rider faces also guilt and dignity issues.
