Re: Zanol - After being in a coma (induced or otherwise) only a month prior to the sart date the race, even if Felipé woke up from his hospital bed dancing and singing...It'd be a very brave doctor (team legal people) who would give a rider a "release" and declare them fit to ride after a blow to the melon like that...

Kinda like a KO in the boxing ring... wisest move is a mandatory time out - even if you do come up swinging.

As far as replacements go... No news on that front, and it's getting closer to "D day" every day that passes...
