Suffering from a double cervical hernia, Didier Rous is still sitting out competition. The Bougues Telecom rider has not raced for a month. At 37-years-old, he had intended 2007 to be his last season.
"I expected 2007 to be my last season, but I do not want to stop like this," said Rous according to Eurosport. "I am resting now, and at this stage of my career, I don't want to undergo surgery." Rous will sit out the Tour de France and the French National Championships.
"I do not know if I will be able to compete again one day. It is very difficult," he said referring to the uncertainty.
