Team Barloworld's Ryan Cox is in intensive care following emergency surgery Monday to repair a bleeding artery, the team has announced.
Cox underwent surgery for a vascular lesion three weeks ago in Europe and returned to his home in South Africa to recuperate. "The South African cyclist's condition deteriorated on Monday, and he was rushed to hospital by his family," the team said. "After consulting with doctors, it was advised that Cox required an emergency operation to repair a bleeding artery." SW
