Martin Viet, 35, was listed in fair condition Monday night, according to a spokesman from Fletcher Allen Medical Center.
Viet was one of several bicyclists who had been participating in “Tour De Farm,” a 30-mile ride on Sunday morning, when they were hit by a car on Route 74.
Police said Veit suffered head and internal injuries after he went through the windshield. A 15-year-old girl from Williamstown, Mass., suffered a fractured pelvis.
