Cofidis rider Andrei Kivilev is in a serious condition after a crash in yesterday's second stage of Paris-Nice. Kivilev fell as the race passed through St. Chamond, approximately 40km from the finish. He was taken to St Etienne hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious skull fracture and two broken ribs, and is now in a coma. His team-mate Marek Rutkiewicz and Gerolsteiner's Volker Ordowski also came down, but they were not as seriously hurt. cyclingnews.com
