Horillo Munoz woken from induced coma

MILAN -- Spanish rider Pedro Horillo Munoz was awoken from a 24-hour coma Sunday after tumbling off the side of the road during a high-speed descent at the Giro d'Italia.

Horillo Munoz was able to move his legs and speak with doctors at a hospital in Bergamo, race organizers said.

The Rabobank rider crashed and tumbled 180 feet into a wooded area in Saturday's eighth stage from Morbegno to Bergamo. He was diagnosed with fractures in his upper leg, knee and vertebrae, and broken ribs that punctured his lungs.
