I have been diagnosed with this and it concerns me. I posted on FB and have had some other cyclist who were diagnosed. One I raced against is still riding and racing, the other is older and he had to have surgery, but is back at it now.

Anyone on here have any experience with this?

Most people with bifid (bicuspid) Ao valves have no symptoms or problems. Once reaching your 50's or so, some people will begin to develop stenosis of the valve, which can cause problems, and eventually require valvuloplasty or replacement, but if you have no problems now you should not have any restrictions, either.
