SBK: WorldWCR: Mia Rusthen in medically induced coma:

New news is arriving on the condition of Mia Rusthen, the 22-year-old Norwegian rider hospitalized at the Maurizio Bufalini Hospital in Cesena following the accident she suffered on Saturday in Misano, in the inaugural race of the FIM Women's Circuit Racing World Championship, the newly formed Women's Motorcycle Racing World Championship.

It was the Rusthen family that updated on the condition of the young rider, who was found to have a head injury and concussion, through a brief note circulated on the team's Facebook page last night.

"Mia is currently in an induced coma. She underwent surgery to reduce intracranial pressure and remove a hemorrhage," reads the update. " The doctor is very positive and satisfied with the result. The intracranial pressure has stabilized and the vital parameters are stable. We appreciate all the thoughts and affection that have already been directed to Mia. This means everything, even though she is already the strongest woman in the world!"

Words that give hope, while the dynamics of the crash suffered by the 22-year-old at Misano Turn 2 on the fifth lap of Race 1 remains unclear. The same spot on the Romagna track where in 2013 Alessia Polita's nasty crash occurred during the CIV Superstock 600 class Qualifying.
