RICKY Ashworth has been transferred from Hull Royal Infirmary closer to his home in Salford.
The Berwick Bandits rider, who remains in a coma following his accident against Scunthorpe Scorpions last month, is now considered ‘stable enough’ to be moved to a similar unit at Salford Royal.

Ashworth has been making small signs of progress since he suffered life-threatening head injuries at the Eddie Wright Raceway.
Although he has yet to regain consciousness, last week he was taken off a life support machine and was said to be in an ‘uninduced coma’ and ‘breathing unaided’.
A statement released by Berwick on Wednesday night said: “Ricky Ashworth remains in his coma, but today’s news is that he is now considered stable enough to be transferred this (Wednesday) afternoon from Hull General to a similar unit at Salford Royal.
“This will afford Ricky the same specialist neurological treatment and assist his recovery in the same way as at Hull, but with the massive advantage to his family that instead of a 200-mile, four-hour round trip to visit his bedside (as they have been doing every day for the past month) he will be literally “just down the road”.”

   
Having been a biker/racer for most of my life, this subject is close to my heart.
Get well soon R.A.
