The family of Cees Stam, who injured in a crash during the second night of competition at the Six-Days of Amsterdam, has today released further information on the results of medical assessment to the 68-year-old former world champion. Tests undertaken by staff at Amsterdam’s VU hospital reveal that Stam exhibited signs of a heart arrhythmia immediately prior to the crash that appear to have been a contributing factor to the accident.

The 68-year-old Stam remains in a critical condition under observation and Amsterdam’s VU hospital.
