Conti Climbs Off Giro d’Italia
Former Maglia Rosa holder Valerio Conti pulls out before stage 18 of the Giro d’Italia.
Doctor Jarrad Van Zuydam, physician from UAE Team Emirates, explains:
“Over the past week, Valerio has been struggling with pain due to a cyclist’s nodule, ischial hygroma. We have been treating his condition with some success but unfortunately, his condition deteriorated significantly after the stage yesterday“.
Conti was disappointed:”This is not how I wanted my Giro to end.
Despite the assistance of the staff, the situation got worse: I tried to fight through it, but unfortunately withdrawing is the only option.
The Giro has been full of satisfaction for me, I will always remember the days I spent in pink and they will motivate me to get to the next level“.
