The 2021 Revo ACU British Championship powered by Gulf Race Fuels fired into life at Culham in Oxfordshire yesterday. Unfortunately, however, the mood turned sour after Bas Vaessen had a hard crash in MX2 moto one. Bas and his girlfriend, Bente, just released this statement with what they know currently. Everyone at MX Vice sends Bas the very best.
“Hi guys! Here an update on Bas his situation. For now he is in the adult intensive care unit in Oxford. They are taking very good care of him.
“He broke his vertebrae T8 to T11, for now this is not the issue and it doesn’t need surgery.
“Unfortunately he hit his neck again, no new fractures but a lot of swelling. For now it is uncertain what the outcome will be in the future.
“We wanna thank you for all the sweet massages your sending! I’m going to read the messages to him but he can’t answer them right now, because he can’t move properly. We’ll stay positive and keep you updated.”
