At yesterday’s Piccolo Lombardia, Development Team Sunweb’s Edo Maas was involved in a crash on the descent of the Madonna del Ghisallo, into a car that had entered the parcours. Edo was transported to the hospital in Milano with severe injuries. The following update is given at the request of Edo’s family.
Edo is currently sedated, he is stable and his life is not at threat. He has sustained fractures to his neck, back and face. Further investigations are ongoing to determine the full extent of his injuries.
Edo’s family and girlfriend are now with him in Italy, and the team’s doctor will arrive in Milano later today.
This is all of the information that is currently available and we kindly ask to respect the family’s privacy through this difficult time. Another update will be provided when applicable.
The Team Sunweb family send their thoughts, prayers and strength to Edo and his loved ones in these incredibly difficult moments.
