Jakob Piil of T-Mobile Team underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, the team announced.

"The operation went well. If all goes normally, Jakob will be able to start fully training again in one to two weeks," team doctor Helge Riepenhof said on the team's website, t-mobile-team.com.

The Danish rider will be able to start racing again in about three weeks. "But we shouldn't expect too much from him. He will need time to get back into it."
