Team Spine rider in coma after crash

Team Spine member and category one racer, Pat Caurant, is in an induced coma at John Muir Hospital due to severe injuries that he sustained after a crash while on a training ride on Saturday.

Caurant suffered severe damage to his head and face. His doctors performed six hours of plastic surgery on Sunday to stop bleeding in his head and have replaced eight litres of blood. The extent of the brain damage will be assessed when the swelling reduces.

2005 US national road champion, Katheryn Curi (Webcor-Platinum) described Caurant as a, "friend, middle school teacher and good person."
