Knee pain forces Giacomo Nizzolo to leave Tirreno-Adriatico
 
Sarnano, March 10 – In the opening kilometers of Stage 4 of Tirreno-Adriatico, Giacomo Nizzolo and his team, Trek-Segafredo, made the decision for Nizzolo to not continue in the race due to knee pain.  

Nizzolo sprinted to third place on the second stage of this year’s race but will be unable to contest the remaining three stages – “I had a bit of pain in the left knee yesterday, and today there was more. I’m confident that the problem can be solved but it didn’t make sense to go deep and suffer more to perhaps create more problems.” 

“Giaco was forced to abandon today because he has been suffering since yesterday with an anterior knee pain. This morning he was still having sharp pain in his knee, so we decided to quit here and to start treatment, as there is no sense in risking anything on a day like this with more than 5000 meters of climbing and just one week until Milan-San Remo. The best decision was to stop today, treat him and hopefully he will be ready for the next week,” explained Trek-Segafredo Head Doctor Nino Daniele.

Trek-Segafredo is enduring its fair share of early season misfortune as Koen de Kort was also forced to abandon stage 7 of PN today, after John Degenkol stopped earlier to bronchitis.
