Adriano Malori is recovering well from his horror crash on stage five of the Tour de San Luis, according to a statement released by his Movistar team.

Malori crashed at 65kph about 30km from the finish, suffering head injuries and a broken collarbone in the fall and was placed in a medically-induced coma.

But the Italian national time trial champion, who finished second to Vasil Kiryienka in the world championships last year, is making progress and may be transferred to a hospital in Spain soon.
