“Not a good end to Liege yesterday!” he wrote. “Surgery tomorrow and the big build up begins again. Used to it by now!”
The six-time and current South African TT champion won a stage at the Tour of Catalonia earlier this month and finished 18th at the Amstel Gold Race last weekend.
He was set to race the Tour de Yorkshire starting this weekend but will obviously have to scratch those plans. However, he should be able to recover in the time for the Tour de France.
