For different reasons, this increasingly feels like an Andy situation with multiple stop and starts and hoping for a return to fitness at the highest level. Hope we can see him back at the top at some point this year.
 
Euh... WTF? No real explanation given, other than he has to wait until he is 100% again... But a return from what though? The illness he caught prior to Valencia? Or is there another issue?

At this point i can only see him as a domestique in the TDF, if he ends up going at all.
 
My take is there's no panic, but they don't have a definite diagnosis and are simply being overly cautious. It's not like he can't race TA/MSR but that they don't want him to do races before altitude, which is where TJV are crazy about their schedules.

And he just moved there because Sunweb were suffocating him with their rules and schedules.

And... if he were riding Valencia, what would have been the difference? He would have been riding before altitude as well, no?
