Any update on this cyclists condition?

Nasty.  There was an Advertiser article as well.  Some of the comments contain the usual offensive rubbish.

If you think a close pass on a cyclist is safe (less than a metre), try walking on a station platform between the yellow and white lines while a train is passing.
