Great Britain's leading female track endurance rider Emma Davies (Vlaanderen-Capri Sonne-T Interim) was involved in a hit and run accident last Monday, October 10. Emma was riding to the Manchester Velodrome for a training session. She was on a cycle path when a car turned directly across her. "I turned to try and avoid the vehicle but he turned directly into me," said Emma.

The driver left the scene of the accident and despite another vehicle chasing him, managed to escape. Fortunately a witness took the registration number and police subsequently arrested the driver.

Emma was initially taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary, and then on the advice of her Orthopaedic Consultant she was transferred to the Spinal Injury Unit at Hope Hospital, Salford, where she is making excellent progress and is under the care of Consultant Neurological Surgeon Mr James Leggate - who expects Emma to make a full recovery.

Emma's father John Davies said, "She is making excellent progress, and the support of everyone at the British World Class Plan and Vlaanderen has been superb and I am convinced it's helping greatly in the recovery process. The medical team are ruling nothing out in terms of the speed of recovery, and so Emma is very positive."

Emma was recently married and will subsequently be known as Emma Davies Jones.
