LottoNL-Jumbo's Lars Boom will undergo heart surgery in a few weeks and will start his 2018 season later than planned.

The Dutch rider was diagnosed with a cardiac arrhythmia a few weeks ago but it can be fixed with an operation that will take place at the start of 2018. "Fortunately, they can solve everything," he commented during the presentation of LottoNL-Jumbo in the Netherlands.

"I am doing well now and I will have to do a lot of training hours during the first weeks of January. Then I will take a break."

The rider was set to appear at the Australian Tour Down Under but his season will have to start later in the year.
