The crash has left McCoy with no feeling below his waist, causing concern for his future and well-being.

McCoy took to social media yesterday to update fans on his condition.

The post read:

“Thank you Everyone for the messages, for those who don’t know I had a crash last night, at this stage I have no feeling from the waist down, still waiting on surgeons to confirm what operations will be needed. Will keep everyone updated as news comes.” 

The Dirt Action team wishes Dan a speedy recovery and we will update you on his condition as more details are released.
