Bart Wellens Seriously Ill

Belgian cyclocross rider Bart Wellens, a former world champion and favorite for today's Belgian championships, was rushed to the hospital with an extremely high fever and potentially life-threatening consequences on Saturday. Though his condition has stabilized and the danger reduced, Wellens experienced "multiple organ failure" and "heart capacity reduced to 10%" according to Sporza. Presently his condition is described as "worrying." We will provide updates as they become available. Look in comments too.
