Thomas Kjer Olsen is ontwaakt uit zijn kunstmatige coma. De doktoren konden dit doen vanwege zijn stabiele gezondheidstoestand.
Thomas kan zijn armen en benen bewegen en boekt iedere dag progressie.
Aankomende week zal Olsen naar Denemarken worden getransporteerd. Daar zal hem een lange en zware revalidatie staan te wachten. De komende weken is het belangrijk voor hem om zoveel mogelijk uit te rusten om zo goed mogelijk te kunnen herstellen. Hierdoor is het niet mogelijk om hem te bezoeken.

DIGA Procross KTM Racing Team have given an update on their social channels about Thomas Kjer Olsen’s condition following his crash in the qualifying race at the MXGP of Latvia in Kegums last week. The statement says:
“Thomas Kjer Olsen wakes from medically induced coma.
After the heavy crash and the resulting head injury during the qualifying race at the MXGP of Latvia in Kegums, DIGA Procross KTM Racing athlete Thomas Kjer Olsen was placed in a medically induced coma for a couple of days. In the past few days the doctors have brought Thomas back to consciousness due to his stable health condition.
Thomas is able to move his arms and legs and is fortunately making further progress every day.
In order to give Thomas a familiar environment, his transfer from Latvia to his home country of Denmark is planned for the coming week. There, the long and hard process of recovery will also begin.
The most important thing for Thomas in the next few weeks is to get plenty of rest in order to make the best possible progress in his recovery. For this reason, visits are unfortunately not possible during this time.
The family and the DIGA Procross KTM Racing Team would like to thank you all again for the messages regarding Thomas’ health and the prayers for him. We all look forward to seeing him back at the track soon, healthy and smiling”
Infront Moto Racing along with the entire MXGP crew and paddock continue to keep Thomas, his family and the team in their thoughts, sending them all their best wishes and hope for a speedy recovery.
