Luke Arbon is on the road to recovery after breaking his C6 vertebra bedding in a new engine at Murray Bridge on Saturday.

Luke Arbon broke his C6 vertebra during practice at the Murray Bridge round of the Motul MX Nationals.

lucky to still have feeling in my arms and legs. At this stage I’m still laid up in hospital waiting for further scans. A massive thanks for all the messages and love. Means the world to me.”
