Theo Bos to miss the London Olympics because of leg surgery 

Famous Dutch road cyclist, Theo Bos, was keen to make his mark at the 2012 London Olympics but his dreams were shattered because of a leg injury. He will now undergo a surgery, as mentioned on the team’s website, Rabosport.nl.  

He started his professional career with the Continental team, Rabobank, in 2009 and moved to Cervelo Test Team in 2010. He rejoined Team Rabobank in 2011, after staying with Cervelo for a period of one year.

He was extremely disappointment about missing the 2012 Olympics due to his injury. Theo will now undergo surgery for a blood vessel in his leg.

He stated, "For me, it's obviously a disappointment, for I felt I was making progress. Because of the long rehabilitation, I decided to abandon my Olympic ambitions on track. It is with a heavy heart, but I have to be realistic".

Theo has proved himself by numerous wins throughout his career. His major wins this season include, Dutch Food, Tour of Oman, Tour of Denmark and Valley Classic.

Bos is well known for his strong grip on Track Cycling and Road Cycling. His latest achievements include the 3rd place finish at the UCI Track World Championships 2011.

He won stage 1 and stage 3 of the Tour of Oman, stage 6 win at the Tour of Denmark, overall victory at the Tour de Rijke and Dutch Food Valley Classic in the current season.

Theo’s surgery has certainly ruled him out from some of the biggest events of cycling. The cyclist is hopeful for a successful surgery so that he can get back on his bike soon. His fans across the world will be anxious to see him back in action.

The 28-year-old will be tied to his bed for six weeks after the surgery which is expected to take place on the 14th of November.

He will not be able to participate in any race or training session for a period of 6 weeks which makes him ineligible to participate in the World Cups, the World Championships and the Olympics.

There is no final date for his return but the cyclist is hopeful to make a comeback in the 2012 season after a successful surgery.
