Ineos-Grenadiers' Gianni Moscon has undergone some heart tests, but his condition will not require surgery.

On the last weeks, fears emerged about the state of Moscon's heart, as he suffered from arrhythmias during the World Championships of Flanders and the Sabatini Cup. Although, he returned to his normal state at the end of the season, further investigations on his condition were necessary.

The Italian underwent tests at the Torrette Lancisi Hospital in Ancona that ruled out any cardiac pathologies or anomalies that require any kind of surgery. The rider got an implant of a heart loop-record, which will monitor all the cardiac activity and check if there are any new abnormal episodes.

"Yesterday we carried out a complete study of cardiac electrical stability, and there was an absence of anomalies," explained Dr. Roberto Corsetti -director of the Medical Center B&B specialized in cardiology and sports medicine- to the Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The sudden increases in the heart rate during exercise, recently experienced by Gianni, are not linked to any important pathological phenomena."

Moscon is set to move to Astana Qazaqstan Team at the start of 2022, where he arrives with a two-year contract.
