Marianne Vos (Rabobank-Liv/Giant) underwent a successful surgery to remove a small abdominal cyst from her lower back. She has now returned home after the surgery, and will have a short rest.

"The cyst was removed through keyhole surgery, so there is a small wound,” Vos said. “The recovery is going very well and the wound is especially less painful than I had expected it to be. I'm glad I’ve have it done. The after effects are not too bad.”

On November 26th, Vos will departing for a training camp with the Netherlands national team in South Africa, and then she will return to competition at the Cyclocross World Cup in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium, on December 26th.

"It’s fine to combine them,” Vos said. "We will come back on December 13th, and then I will have a week and a half to specifically to train for cyclocross. Then I’ll use the upcoming races to prepare for the National Championships and World Championships. My main goals this winter.”
