Franck Petricola, the French rider who was injured during a practice crash at the North West 200, has flown home to France where he will continue his treatment.

Petricola, a newcomer to the North West 200, crashed alone near the start finish line in the first five minutes of Superstock practice and was flown to the nearby Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. A statement from the North West 200 said that he had been brought gradually out of sedation and was responding well to the medical team at the Royal Victoria Hospital.

Meanwhile Michael Pearson, who was injured in a crash at the Horice road races, has started to show signs of improvement.

The 37-year-old racer was competing in a Superbike race at the event in the Czech Republic when he was seriously injured in an incident at the first corner. He was airlifted to hospital to receive treatment on a back injury and internal bleeding.

He was first reported to be in a critical condition, but was reported to be in a stable condition on Tuesday and is believed to be talking and responding well, as well as remembering everything that happened in the accident.
