Michele Gobbi's doctors have reported that while still in a serious condition the Team Milram rider has shown positive signs. Gobbi remains in a drug-induced coma following a violent crash on the final lap of Sunday's GP Beghelli. "Fortunately Michele has been reactive to the external stimulation, that means the prognostic is positive," explained Dr. Claudius Sprenger.
Doctors at the Bologna Maggiore hospital diagnosed a cerebral hematoma and fractures to the skull following the incident. Team doctor Sprenger reported that two separate brain scans have shown evidence of stabilisation within the brain and that Gobbi will remain in an induced coma for at least a further 36 hours.
