The young Italian will be off the bike in the coming weeks.

Following his crash at the Trofeo Laigueglia, Andrea Bagioli developed some pain in his left knee. After examination and consultation with the Deceuninck – Quick-Step medical team, it was decided he would undergo a small knee operation, which has successfully resolved the issue.

Victorious this season at the Drôme Classic, 22-year-old Andrea will now take three weeks of complete rest, after which he can start to train on his rollers, with a view to building his fitness and hopefully returning to competition towards the end of July or early August.
