2015 Tour de France Ivan Basso

Withdraws with testicular cancer

13 Jul, 2015

Basso withdraws during the first rest day of the race after a routine medical check up reveals a tumour in his left testicle. Basso is to return to his home country of Italy for further medical tests. This leaves the eight remaining members of his Tinkoff Saxo team to carry on in their quest to put Alberto Contador into the yellow jersey.
