Coenen diagnosed with serious health problem

Team Saeco's Davy Coenen is suffering from a serious health condition. Coenen was diagnosed with a brain tumor after seeking medical attention for a continuous headache. A biopsy was performed, with results pending.

"There are three possible outcomes," said Ben Van Woinsel to "One, the tumor is benign and surgery is not needed, or it's not benign but surgery is needed to avoid pressure on the brain. Or in worst case scenario, the tumor is malignant. However, the tumor is discovered in an early stage so there is a good chance of success."
