Former Keirin world champion Christin Muche is recovering from back surgery to repair a herniated disc. The German's surgery was reportedly a success, but the rider will not recover in time to contest the Track World Championships in Pruszkow, Poland at the end of March.

The 25-year-old will undergo rehabilitation, which will take six to eight weeks, according to dpa. When she can ride again is uncertain.
