Française Des Jeux has announced that its rider Sébastien Joly has a tumour and will stop cycling immediately.

"My season is officially interrupted due to the recent discovery of a tumour," the 32 year-old Frenchman noted in a press release. "I will be operated on Tuesday, July 3, and after this procedure there will be the possibility of a precise diagnosis. In a subsequent communication, I will make known the duration of my period of recovery and the eventual treatment. Thanks to my family and my team for the support they have given me."

L'Equipe reported an operation is to determine if the tumour is benign or not and that its location is unknown. The eighth-year professional is the winner of this year's Paris-Camembert.
