Bart Wellens (Fidea Cycling Team)
Latest blood test promising for rider suffering from virus
Cyclo-cross star Bart Wellens was cleared to get back on the bike this week after a blood test showed he was no longer suffering from the Cytomegalovirus which had ruined the start to his season.
The Belgian said he received the results of a blood test on Wednesday and was allowed to begin riding again, but only for one hour a day. "Not for training! Just to get used to being on the bike again," he said on his web site.
"After eight days I will have another test, and if that is clear I will go to Spain for a while.
Wellens said he may be able to return to competition in mid-December, but maintained he has abandoned any goals for the season. "At the moment I could not finish top ten in the newcomers. Therefore I can no longer set any goals for the season."
