SBK: Herrera wins sprint over Carrasco, Howden heli-transported but conscious

After the serious accident in the morning to Mia Rusthen, who was helicoptered to Bufalini Hospital in Cesena for a polytrauma, Race 1 of the Women's World Championship experienced more moments of apprehension in the afternoon when Jessica Howden was the victim of a crash in Turn 2.

The dynamics of the accident are not well understood, but the rider suffered a craneoencephalic trauma, to the point that she was also helicoptered to Bufalini Hospital in Cesena. Fortunately, Jessica Howden is conscious, and that is the most important thing as we await new information on the matter.

On the track it was a real challenge with Maria Herrera winning the first race of the finale. In fact, on the last lap, the Forward bearer placed the winning attack against Ana Carrasco, winning the Saturday victory.

Thus mocked the Evan Bros rider, who was forced to console herself with second place while Sara Sanchez closed the podium, completing the trio of Spaniards.

Instead, Roberta Ponziani remains off the podium with Beatriz Neila fifth ahead of Chilean Isis Carreno. The top ten then includes room for Michel and Ruiz while Van Aswegen remains out.

Beyond Herrera's victory, the biggest challenge in these hours is certainly being run by Mia Rhusten, whose condition is critical.
