Condition continues to slowly improve

Mauricio Soler continues his steady improvement following a crash during the sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse in June.

The Movistar rider remains at the Clínica Universitaria de Navarra in Pamplona where he undergoes physical therapy on his right leg while the left remains immobilised due to a fracture sustained in the crash in which Soler collided with a spectator.

The 28-year-old sustained head injuries and was placed in an induced coma after he collided with a spectator during the race. Soler spent three weeks in an ICU in St. Gallen, Switzerland, before he was transferred to Pamplona last month.

According to Revista Solo Ciclismo, Soler has no recollection of the incident but now recognises his visitors which include his wife, Movistar teammates and Miguel Indurain. He is able to hold brief conversations although they come with some difficulty.
