A 12-year-old motorcycle racer from Lake Odessa is in critical condition in a Florida hospital after wrecking his bike during a race.

Gage Beland, who WOOD TV says has been racing motorcycles since he was 5 years old, was badly hurt when his bike hit another that went down in a corner of a flat track race Monday not far from Daytona.

His aunt Becky Cole says that young Gage is recovering but "not out of the woods."

They are worried about brain injury.
