For all you NitroNori fans we have and update from Italian website GPone.com regarding the Xerox Ducati rider who was suspected to have fractured his T8 e T9 vertebrae and was airlifted to a hospital in Derby. At the hospital, Haga was stabilized and had fluid drained from around the injury as a preventative measure and surgery was placed on hold so that Haga could undergo a second scan.
The latest scan fortunately does not show any recent vertebral fractures. Haga however will be operated on to set his ulnar fracture while a left shoulder-blade fracture is still being investigated.
Ducati team manager Davide Tardozzi commentated:
This is good news and will be confirmed on Monday. Nori will certainly be operated on his right ulna because it’s a compound fracture and the shoulder blade fracture is still being investigated. It’s obvious that if he doesn’t have to have surgery on his vertebrae, he could be back after a month of rest.
