Re: Man Down - Injury Reports 2019

#riwal Riwal-Readynez' Krister Hagen is barred from competition due to heart condition discovered in #riwal routine EKG heart health check. Surgery to take place early February. A date for when Hagen can return to racing for his new team has not been set.

This has raised a few eyebrows here, because Krister is not a young racer anymore and he has spent quite a few seasons with Aleksander Kristoff's part-owned #coop outfit. They're supervised by Kristoff's coach (and step-father) Stein Ørn, and his off-duty outside sports occupation (no idea how many hours that man has in day) is that he is a medical doctor specialized in (you guessed it) the heart. #coop obviously did not perform the same types of health checks for their riders.

Thumbs up to Riwal-Readynez for taking good care of their employees  :cool !
