Race news

Alfonso Mottola died overnight,  Hausler improved, but no Worlds

Alfonso Mottola

Poignantly, on the day when the race gathered at her memorial statue, for a service to remember Michela Fanini, it was announced that Alfonso Mottola died overnight. Mottola, just 46 years old, was diagnosed with cancer 6 months ago and was forced to stop working as Directeur Sportif of the Michela Fanin Record Rox team after the first World Cup of 2010, Trofeo Alfredo Binda. 

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and the team. Rest In Peace.

Claudia Hausler

After her crash on Stage 2, Claudia Hausler (Cervelo Test Team) was admitted to hospital in Pisa with head injuries. The young German did not require surgery, but has internal bruising and was detained in hospital for observation and further tests. 

Hausler has now been ruled out of participation in the World Championships in Geelong in two week's time. The risks associated with complications arising from such a long plane journey and the exertion of competition are considered too great. 

Hausler was at the finish of Stage 5 on Saturday and will be driven back to Germany this weekend.
