WSS: Craig Jones Badly Hurt at Brands

English racer Craig Jones has suffered serious head injuries after a massive crash in the World Supersport race at Brands Hatch. He highsided out of the last turn at high speed and was hit by another bike. He is now in a chemically-induced coma, with a statement from his team saying that it will be 24 to 48 hours before any more will be known.

Jonesy is one of the leading WSS riders, known for his sideways style. He is very, very quick and somewhat erratic, a combination which makes him hugely popular with the fans. We all have our fingers crossed that Jonesy will make a full and fast recovery.

UPDATE: Craig Jones tragically died of his injuries during the night. More here.
