Bennetts British Superbike Championship organisers MSVR have provided an update this morning (July 29) on the condition of Brad Jones.

The iForce Lloyd & Jones BMW rider suffered serious head, chest, and pelvic injuries following an accident in the opening race of the weekend at Brands Hatch and was consequently airlifted to King’s College Hospital, London. Jones was unconscious at the scene and has since been placed into an induced coma.

“Operations have not been required for his head or chest injuries, but a procedure is planned to stabilise his pelvic fracture today (Thursday), today’s statement reads. “Following that, it is anticipated that he will be kept in the medically induced coma until the beginning of next week.

“The MSVR BSB Medical Team remain in direct contact with the family and hospital staff. The family wishes to reiterate their sincere thanks for the overwhelming support they have received. Further information will be released when possible. Additional updates are not expected prior to next week.”
