Team HRC Members Suffer Monoxide Poisoning While Asleep In France

Three hospitality staff from Team HRC, the factory Honda team competing in the MXGP Motocross World Championship, were found to have suffered Carbon Monoxide poisoning whilst sleeping in the team‰Ûªs hospitality truck, as they always do when travelling to and from races.

They were subsequently airlifted to different hospitals in Geneva, Lyon and Strasbourg, to provide the best accessibility for each to hyperbaric chambers for oxygen treatment.

As of midday Friday 29 May, all three are continuing to receive oxygen treatment and are under constant medical observation. At this point, no prognosis can be reliably given by medical staff so more time is needed before their situations can be assessed. Owing to the subjective nature of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, this timeframe also cannot be specified at present.

An investigation is ongoing into the source of the Carbon Monoxide, and the authorities are in possession of the hospitality truck to conduct further tests and assessments and continue their investigation more thoroughly.

Team HRC have announced that they will provide updates as and when available.

The team will continue with its racing activities this weekend at the MXGP of France.
