Due to the serious accident the races of the stage of the World Championship in Poland have been suspended . Also last year, the champion from Piacenza was the victim of an accident at 180 km per hour on the same Znin circuit.
From the fragmentary news that is arriving in Italy, Rossi would not be in danger of life, but in any case he should remain hospitalized in intensive care for a few days.
