Jonas Rickaert successfully operated on for narrowed femoral artery

    “Jonas is waiting for a long rehabilitation. He starts with a period of five weeks of flat rest”, the Belgian formation reports. “We’re all behind you, Ricky.” At the beginning of June, Rickaert shared a medical update on Instagram. He then reported that he was unlikely to return to action in 2022. “After many examinations in the hospital, a kink in an artery came to light. That’s why I always get a strange feeling in my left leg,” said Rickaert, who mainly serves as lead-out for sprinters Tim Merlier and Jasper Philipsen at Alpecin-Fenix. . He last came into action at the end of March in Gent-Wevelgem, but he did not make it to the finish.
