Bui's suffers bad crash

Italian Mountain bike champion Marco Bui suffered a very serious accident on Wednesday near Bassano del Grappa, in the north east of Italy. Bui was riding his scooter when he hit a car near the small town of Pove del Grappa. He was taken to Bassano del Grappa hospital and was diagnosed with multiple fractures of his right leg (shin and thigh) and a perforated spleen, among other injuries. He underwent several operations overnight and doctors said that his life is no longer in danger

Bui's parents, his team manager Mauro Bettin, and his team president Giovanni Battaglin are at the hospital now. Battaglin said that he will do all he can to help Bui, and maybe, in the next few weeks, he could be moved to a private hospital in France.
