Continuing progress for Luca!

Continuing positive news on Luca Manca (first hand, even!)

He remembers everyone, he recalled the fall of Casteu and was very surprised at the podium Chaleco on Aprilia! And tapped the hand on the bed when I spoke to him on the Dakar. He expresses his anger to fell dow.

He still has difficulty to speak because of intubation but progressing day by day.
It should be repatriated within a few days in Italy, when he can swallow.

I told him how you were all affected by his condition and that you were thinking with him.

In his eyes shines the light of the rider you all know. He just need time to recover.

Yes, I have a Dakar problem -- that there are 50 weeks of the year without Dakar!

They don't expect you to finish. That's why it's the Dakar. -- PPiA
