Irish professional Nicolas Roche underwent an operation on Monday to remove four wisdom teeth. The 21 year old underwent general anaesthetic during the procedure, but hopes to be back training soon.
He recently met up with the rest of his Cofidis team-mates at the French squad's first training camp in Amiens, held between the 21st and the 25th of November. The next training camp will be in Montpellier between the 12th and 17th of December.
Roche, son of the 1987 Tour de France winner Stephen Roche, had a solid first season with the team. He took two top ten placings in 1.1 ranked events, finishing sixth in the Tour du Finistère and fourth in the Tour de Vendée.
