Primoz Roglic still off the bike for another month - "That shoulder needs to be repaired"

Primoz Roglic has undergone a surgery one month ago exactly, where the goal was to prevent further issues in his shoulder which he has on several occasions dislocated. Despite being in the off-season, the Slovenian admits he will still need substantial time off the bike.

"That shoulder needs to be repaired," Roglic said in an interview with Val 202. "It's no secret that I've dislocated my shoulder several times. It's not nothing that's going to happen. They cut off a piece of the bone and moved it to where the shoulder dislocated," he described. Having crashed hard at the 16th stage of the Vuelta a Espana Roglic was left heartbroken and injured once again.

Instead of trying to return to competition in the final events of the year he decided to end his season there, and prioritize his health during the off-season, undergoing a procedure that he believes will prevent further problems in the future. However it comes at a cost, as Roglic will spend two months off the bike because of it, delaying his training plans throughout the deep winter months.

“Rehabilitation is going according to plan. I can move the shoulder a bit again, although I may have to wait another month before I can cycle again. However, I am currently also busy with other projects," he concluded.
