Knee operation delays Renäng

Swedish talent Petter Renäng will not be joining his Unibet teammates at training camp in Calpe, as he is undergoing a knee operation. Renäng will have the operation performed on Tuesday by Dr De Clercq in Antwerp. A scan showed that he has tissue rubbing on his knee that resulted in pain and inflammation. The doctor will remove the cause of the pain and after a two week period off the bike, Renäng should be able to train again without pain.

Petter will be helped in his comeback by the well known Belgian physiotherapist Lieven Maesschalck. During first part of his rehab, Renäng will stay in Waregem, and from February 1, he'll stay together with Glenn Bak (Unibet-Davo) in Geraardsbergen.
