Development Team Sunweb's Edo Maas has been involved in a heavy crash at the Piccolo Lombardia and his condition is serious but his life is not in danger.

The Dutch rider suffered a heavy crash in the area between Canzo and Asso when he was on a downhill stretch of the course, reported local news website Ciao Como. Maas collided violently against the left rear window of a car that entered course because of reasons that are under investigation.

After the crash, the 19-year-old was taken first to a hospital in Erba and from then transported by helicopter to a hospital in Milan. The first examinations have determined several injuries that include fractures in his neck, back and face.

"Edo is currently sedated, he is stable and his life is not in danger," said Sunweb through a statement. "His family and girlfriend are now with him in Italy, and the team’s doctor will arrive in Milano later today."
