Dog bite to the testicles sees Frederik Frison ruled out of Opening Weekend: "The damage is quite extensive"

Frederik Frison was one of the most important transfers of this winter by Q36.5 Pro Cycling. The Belgian, fresh from the best season of his career, would have been an important card to play especially in the Northern Classics, but the 31-year-old was put out of competition until further notice after a dog attack.

Frison was outside with his daughter when a dog attacked the two, leaving the professional cyclist with unspecified inuries that required medical treatment. "We are optimistic regarding his full recovery," was the statement issued by his Swiss employer. "And we are close to Frederik and his family. We hope to see him in action again in the coming weeks."

“I went to visit acquaintances in the late afternoon when it happened,” Frison explains in conversation with Het Nieuwsblad. “The moment I walked in, I was suddenly attacked by the family dog, a Weimaraner, with painful consequences. After all, the dog bit me in the private parts. And without going into detail: the damage is quite extensive. The hand is also sewn in two places. That's because I wanted to defend myself and tried to push the dog away. Since today (Saturday, ed.) the pain has become somewhat bearable. Although sitting and standing up is still painful.”

“Of course it wasn't that much fun watching the Omloop on television, but I'm trying to put it down. It is now this way and not otherwise,” he concludes.
