Rabobank's Kai Reus remains in an induced coma in a hospital in Grenoble, France. The doctors said that he would remain so until his situation improved.

Meanwhile, the team released more details on how the accident happened. Police reported that he crashed while descending the Col d'Iserand, tumbling off his bike when he tried to pass a car and the chain on his bike broke, according to the team's website, rabobank.nl. Bystanders and police were able to provide first aid, and the cyclist was conscious at that time and when he was brought to the hospital. He was placed in the coma after surgery.

His parents are now with him in the hospital, as is team doctor Dion van Bommel.
