Team Sky's Vasil Kiryienka is currently undergoing treatment after a cardiac screening showed an anomaly. The British team announced that the rider will be sidelined until further notice.

The former time trial World Champion hasn't started in any races yet in 2019. "All of our riders have a cardiac screening every year – and in Kiry’s screening we found an anomaly that required further investigation," said Team Sky Doctor Iñigo Sarriegui to TeamSky.com.

"Following tests, Kiry is currently undergoing treatment and he will remain sidelined until further notice."

The Belarusian will continue to be monitored even after returning to competition. "The doctors have told us to take caution for a period before Kiry resumes racing," explained coach Xabier Artetxe.

"He is still in this period now, so the doctors are looking after him and are monitoring his progress. We need to ensure Kiry is back to 100% before he returns to racing."
