Thursday Zdenek underwent surgery to his right knee due to inflammation of a prepatellar tissue. The surgery was performed by professor Bellemans at the AZ Gasthuisberg Leuven. The surgery went well and Styby is already at home.
“I would like to thank professor Bellemans and the staff of the Gasthuisberg in Leuven for the good care. I can’t ride for three weeks. I will now mainly follow our team at the Giro d’Italia and work on my program for the rest of the year. I’m already looking forward to be back on the bike.”
