Davitamon-Lotto manager Marc Sergeant has contacted Christophe Brandt's doctor in the Jan Palfijn Hospital at Antwerp to discuss the rider's condition after his life, who punctured a lung, broke four ribs and later had to have his kidney removed in a fall at the Schaal Sels race in Belgium.

Dr Berghmans, who operated on Brandt, said that his condition is now stable, and that he will allowed to wake up spontaneously after being kept in induced coma for two more days.

The surgeon also stated that the cerebral functions are normal but repeated that Brandt is facing a long rehabilitation. He also insisted that the loss of one kidney would not impede his return to the top level of the sport.

"Our team is fully confident, and will help Christophe with all possible means during his rehabilitation," said Sargeant.
