Greg Henderson will miss the start of the season
Lotto-Belisol rider Greg Henderson will miss the start of the 2014 season after requiring surgery on a persistent knee problem.
The 37-year-old New Zealander has been suffering from tendon pain known as prepatellar friction syndrome.
Rest and treatment failed to alleviate the problem, so Henderson underwent an operation on Monday.
Team-mate Bart de Clercq is also currently out of action after fracturing a rib during team-building last week.
The 27-year-old Belgian will return to training when the pain subsides, but Lotto-Belisol gave no timescale on his recovery.
