BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Italian Adriano Malori, individual time-trial runner-up at last year's world cycling championships, is in a "stable condition" after crashing at the Tour de San Luis in Argentina.

A doctor said in a statement on Saturday that Malori was in intensive care but that his condition had improved in the first 24 hours since he was taken to San Luis hospital on Friday.

The Movistar team rider was involved in a massive pile-up due to a pothole on the road 30 kilometres from the finish of the fifth stage.
