"It feels good to be back training already. I'm feeling healthy and don't have any pain in my left elbow. I'm taking things a bit easier but am almost back to my normal program, so it will be good to race again soon."

BMC have issued an update on the recovery process of four of their riders who are currently deadling with health issues.


Marcus Burghardt 
Dr. Testa: "Marcus is recovering from an elbow injury sustained in a crash during the Santos Tour Down Under. He has improved a lot faster than we originally anticipated and is already training on the road again. Marcus is an important rider for our Classics campaign and he should be ready to race in the coming weeks."
Burghardt: "It feels good to be back training already. I'm feeling healthy and don't have any pain in my left elbow. I'm taking things a bit easier but am almost back to my normal program, so it will be good to race again soon."
Stefan Küng
Dr. Testa: "Stefan was diagnosed with the Epstein-Barr Virus (mononucleosis) in late December which required him to halt his pre-season training. He has since been training with the team at our most recent camp in Denia and I think in the next three weeks he will be able to race again."
Küng: "I'm feeling much better after having some weeks off the bike. I've been back training for about two weeks now and I'm taking things one day at a time and slowly building up my training intensity. I'm already seeing progress and am looking forward to getting back into racing soon."
Dylan Teuns
Dr. Testa: "Dylan has been suffering from pneumonia which has slowed down his training in the past three weeks. He can now start training more consistently but it will probably be another 4-6 weeks before he can race. His priority will be to work on his fitness once he is fully recovered."
Teuns: "I had four weeks completely off the bike but am back riding now. I'm feeling better everyday and am slowly seeing progression, but I still need to work on my fitness and condition."
Loïc Vliegen
Dr. Testa: "The Dubai Tour was Loïc's first race since undergoing surgery to correct a congenital heart defect in October. All of the tests that have been done show that he has completely recovered, so we are confident he is ready to resume racing."
Vliegen: "My heart operation really is behind me now. It all went well and despite the fact that I had to stop training for two months, my form is coming back. It was nice to be racing again in Dubai."
