Giovanni Visconti to Skip Tour de Suisse
Friday, 2nd June 2017 – Giovanni Visconti from BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team won’t be joining his teammates on Tour de Suisse because of a tendinitis that appeared in the last stages of Giro d’Italia.
“Unfortunatelly I will be forced to skip Tour de Suisse in order to undergo some therapies, needed for the improvement of my condition. If everything will go as expected, I will be able to ride on Tour of Slovenia or some Italian Championships,” stated Giovanni Visconti after his diagnosis.
Emilio Magni, BAHRAIN MERIDA Team Medical Doctor, confirmed Visconti’s words: “Yesterday Visconti underwent an ultrasound and a specialist examination at Florence Hospital, that diagnosed a tenosynovitis (tendinitis) of the long peroneal tendons of the left ankle. We will observe the situation in the next eight days and he will undergo a regional anti-inflammatory treatment together with physio-kinesiotherapy. After that his condition will be re-evaluated.”
All of the riders and members of staff wish him a quick recovery and are looking forward to see him riding again on the upcoming races.
