Arnaud De Lie may make his return to the peloton at the end of April. Stéphane Heulot, the team manager of Lotto Dstny, indicated this in conversation with RTBF. 22-year-old De Lie is struggling with Lyme disease and has been struggling with his form in recent weeks.

Lyme disease is caused by a tick bite, from a tick infected with a bacterium. This infectious disease is controlled with antibiotic treatment for at least ten days. “But we must put the seriousness of the disease in the right perspective. There are different stages and Arnaud seems to be in the first stage,” Heulot said. “We are completely reassured by the doctors.”

And so Heulot is already cautiously looking ahead to a possible return of his golden boy. “The end of April could be a realistic target for his return. We hope that his return will take place in the best possible circumstances.”

De Lie was not yet able to triumph in the Lotto Dstny outfit in the first months of 2024. For the time being, the leader of the Belgian brigade has to make do with top five finishes in the Clásica de Almería, GP de Denain and the Bredene Koksijde Classic. He was also tenth in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.
