Sonny Colbrelli should be able to leave the Girona cardiology unit and return home to Italy in the next few days, as doctors try to understand what caused him to suffer an unstable cardiac arrhythmia after stage 1 of the Volta a Catalunya and investigate the long-term implications for his racing career.

Colbrelli's wife Adelina, his father Luca, and his agent Luca Mazzanti arrived in Spain today, with La Gazzetta dello Sport reporting he could be allowed home by the weekend.
