Pauline Ferrand-Prévot will this winter not the start of a cyclocross. That made the cyclist himself known on Facebook. The world champion cyclocross of 2015 is faced with a geknelde femoral artery, must be operated at the linkeronderbeen and will be four months out. The French had constantly suffered from the sense of a ‘sore leg’.
The 26-year-old Ferrand-Prévot suffered a long time with problems in the linkeronderbeen. “The recurring pain was in the first instance, linked to problems with the hip,” she explains. “But the problem did not get resolved and further investigations showed then the presence of endofibrose, left, and, to a lesser extent to the right, see. Soon there will be a surgical procedure to be planned in Lyon. I will have about four months out of competition.”
