FOUR cyclists injured in Sunday night's horrific Bendigo International Madison crash have been discharged from hospital.
The mid-race crash involving half of the field occurred on the 62nd lap and resulted in four riders and one spectator being taken to hospital.
Spectator Ross Forster, remains in a stable condition at the Alfred Hospital.
Mr Forster, 70, of Maryborough, was watching the race with wife Cheryle, when he was struck by a bike that landed in the corporate section.
Mrs Forster said her husband's condition was slowly improving.
"Ross has a broken jaw and fractures in his cheek, but the best news is the bleed on his brain has stopped," Mrs Forster said.
"We are now waiting for the occupational therapists to tell us what the next steps are."
"He's in good spirits and is resting."
Mrs Forster praised the level of support the family had received from the cycling community.
"Everyone has just been so supportive," she said.
The Forsters operate newsXpress Maryborough and recently re-opened the Family City Hotel in Bendigo as a not-for-profit sporting organisation.
All funds raised from poker machines at the venue are used to benefit the central Victorian cycling community.
The Family City Hotel's manager Tammy Johns said the venue had been overwhelmed with support for Mr Forster.
"There have been plenty of people come in to show their support for Ross," Ms Johns said.
"He is such a well known man."
Cycling Victoria general manager Craig Eastwood said the organisation was in the process of commencing the investigation into the cause of the crash.
"We're currently collating all the relevant information from the event organising committee," Mr Eastwood said.
CV has tabled the crash to be discussed at an upcoming meeting.
"In addition to the event debrief we're going to discuss our crisis management and response which will involve looking at how we mitigate and react to these types of incidents."
In the aftermath of the crash, CV offered counselling services to anyone affected by the incident.
"We are offering the service because of the visibility of the incident," Mr Eastwood said.
"If you have never seen an incident like this before - it can be quite confronting."
