Hoping he can pull through, but remembering what happened with Demoitié with the initial reports of death, then those being retracted, then him passing away afterward, still concerned for him.

Reading this thread from start to finish was such an emotional roller-coaster, and I don't even know the guy. I can't believe I feel relieved that he is "only" in critical condition. God this is an awful year.

Please make it!

Davis Phinney had a crash into the back of an auto as well, right?

Hope this guy can pull through.

ADMIN POST: Keagan's condition is unchanged. He's critical and not yet stable.
He lost a lot of blood.
Send all your positivity to Italy!
