More surgery for Horrillo

Pedro Horrillo of Rabobank has undergone more surgery after being transferred back home from Bergamo, Italy, following his terrible crash in stage eight of the Giro d'Italia. The Spaniard had fallen over a guardrail 80 metres in a ravine and sustained many fractures, including a broken femur.

The femur, on which doctors in Italy had already performed surgery, was successfully operated on again on Wednesday at the university clinic of Pamplona. The intervention lasted four hours. Horrillo also underwent surgery already for his left kneecap and foot, on which a titanium plate was fixed.
