Gobbi in coma after crash

Team Milram's Michele Gobbi has been taken to hospital after a violent crash in the last lap of the GP Beghelli on Sunday. In the Bologna Maggiore hospital, doctors diagnosed a cerebral hematoma and decided to keep the rider in a coma.

"From what we know from the doctors of the hospital where Michele is being treated, he has a cerebral hematoma as well as several micro fractures on his head," said Milram directeur sportif Antonio Bevilacqua. "They told us that Michele is being kept in a drug-induced coma and that the situation is under control. For more precise information, we have to wait for the next CAT-scan, which will be carried out in the coming hours. We can only pray for the best."
