Axel Pons leaves hospital

Son of former Grand Prix legend returns home just two weeks after his horrific crash

IT WAS an horrific accident that left him with a smashed pelvis and two badly broken legs, but at least Axel Pons has just been able to leave the hospital he has been confined to since his accident at the Barcelona 125GP on June 16.

He’s suffered two lengthy operations to pin his shattered bones together and has now ended his 20 day isolation period in the Dexeus Clinic in Barcelona.

Pons, son of multiple World Champion Sito, is a media star in his own right in the motorcycle-mad Spain and is expected to speak to the assembled press masses at around 12.30 tomorrow.
