Kobe Goossens returns to training months after knee surgery: "The wound has almost completely healed"

Kobe Goossens began the 2024 season on absolutely incredible form winning the Trofeo Andratx and Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana alone. However his season was marked heavily by injuries which have not allowed him to perform consistently. After getting treatment, he's now back on the bike.

The Intermarché-Circus-Wanty rider achieved a few more results throughout the spring, but not at the same level. After the Tour de Romandie he spent four months away from racing. His comeback at the Vuelta a Espana was quickly followed by a crash that ended his season. Effectively, he then underwent a knee surgery in September.

“The wound has almost completely healed and I can cycle again for two hours without pain. The plan now is to build up well to next season. We are perfectly on schedule in that regard," Goossens has told Wielerflits. "Of course the condition is not great when you have been out of action for so long, but all in all it is not too bad. I will not be far behind my colleagues."

The Belgian team shared a picture of Goossens on their social media, putting emphasis into this recovery into the 2024 season. The 27-year old holds a contract until 2025 and is expected to be one of the top performers amongst them.
