He has five rib fractures, a bruised liver, some bleeding in the area surrounding it and some fractures to bones in his spine.
As a result he will remain in intensive care for several more days, and will have to delay his return to the Netherlands until next week. Vacansoleil DCM has said that he will be out for the entire spring season. It is as yet unspecified if he will be able to return in time for the Tour de France.
