Below is an update from Blake‰Ûªs Mum Karen.

"Blake was discharged from Brisbane‰Ûªs Princess Alexandra hospital on Thursday 10th July. He has spent ten and half weeks in hospital since the crash at the Wonthaggi MX Nationals on 27th April.

He is so happy to be finally home with his family.

Blake spent two weeks in Melbourne‰Ûªs Alfred hospital and then two weeks in the PA Brisbane, then to be transferred to their Spinal Injury Unit. Blake‰Ûªs doctors are amazed by his determination towards everything he does.

Blake‰Ûªs condition remains unchanged; he is T5/6 paraplegic with no feeling or movement below his chest. With everything he has been through, Blake has a great positive attitude towards life.

He is looking forward to starting rehab with Making Strides on the Gold Coast this week and he is staying hopeful of recovery.

In the future he would like to start driving again and regain some independence.

Blake has had the support of his whole family, friends and the whole motocross community through this.

He would like to give a huge thank you to everyone and anyone who has supported him in any way."
