Simon Andrews has returned to the UK three weeks after the Le Mans horror crash which left him with multiple broken bones and is now in a hospital close to his Evesham home .
The RAF Reserves Honda man has already been back on his feet with the use of crutches and after spending some time at home convalescing he will move to Manchester with work with Darren Roberts from Peak Performance and Doug Jones from Harris & Ross who are experts in mending extreme sports athletes to begin an intense period of rehabilitation over the winter.
“It’s going to be a long road to recovery but after speaking to doctors here the recovery time is a lot shorter due to all my fractures being stable. I can't thank the medical teams in France enough as they did a fantastic job of looking after me. Josh, my doctor here, was impressed so much he has worked solid to get me sat and stood up within one day,” said Andrews, speaking to Bikesport News.
“I'm so lucky having a competitive doctor that thinks of possibilities like me. I still don’t know what happened in the crash except someone in front of me pretty-much stopped at a very fast pace but at same time tipped in to the corner so I had nowhere to go. Alex Cudlin hit him also but stayed on so it was lucky it was only me who was injured.
“There's a chance I could make Macau but I will spend the winter getting myself sorted out and in some intense rehabilitation and then decide what I am going to do.”
