SBK: Good news for Mia Rusthen: she may soon be transferred to Norway

Last weekend the Misano circuit saw the debut of the World Championship dedicated to women, but already on lap 6 the paddock found itself with bated breath due to an accident that occurred at turn 16 and that saw Mia Rusthen as unfortunate protagonist.

Immediately taken to the track's Medical Center in the ambulance that arrived at the point of the crash, the Norwegian rider was later helicoptered to the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena where, following investigations, she was found to have a concussion, as well as a polytrauma.

According to an official message released in the hours immediately following the event by the family, the 22-year-old was reportedly put in a medically induced coma and underwent surgery to relieve intracranial pressure and eliminate bleeding.

A new update on the Scandinavian's health came today: "The condition continues to be stable, which is why in the coming days she could leave Italy to be transferred to Norway, subject to the green light from the medical staff," the note reads.

Involved until 2023 in the WEC, the Women's European Championship, with the Trasimeno team, as of this year she had decided to compete in Women's Circuit Racing with her own personal team, the Rusthen Racing Team.
