Belgian cyclist Stig Broeckx remained in a coma Tuesday after two head operations following a heavy crash during the Tour of Belgium on the weekend.

“Because of the increased intracranial  pressure, Stig Broeckx had to undergo two operations today, which stabilised the intracranial pressure again,” his team Lotto said.

“Stig will need to stay in an induced coma for a while to let his body recover from the injuries and surgery. At the moment no prognosis can be made.”

The 26-year-old rider was involved in a crash Saturday of about twenty riders, caused by a collision of two motorbikes. – Agence France-Presse
