The following is an update from the family of Ian Trettel regarding the condition of the Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider following his practice crash last weekend at the Daytona Supercross . . .
DAYTONA BEACH, FL (March 10, 2011) –
“On Saturday, March 5th, Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider Ian Trettel sustained a head injury during practice at the AMA Supercross event in Daytona, Florida. He was quickly taken to Halifax Medical Center, where he was placed in a medically-induced coma. The accident caused bleeding as well as swelling in his brain and both have been stabilized with medical and surgical interventions. At this time, Ian remains in critical condition, but he is now stable and we expect his condition to improve from this point forward.”
“We have good reason to be hopeful that Ian will make a terrific recovery. However, it is too early to discuss his prognosis, so we will continue to remain cautiously optimistic. Ultimately, it will be Ian’s remarkably strong will, perseverance, dedication, and support from his family and friends that will pull him through the rehabilitation process.”
“We thank all of you for your continued support and ask that you maintain optimism and hope. Like he has done so many times, Ian will bounce back from this and we shall all be by his side to fight with him.”
