Sharon Laws had an operation to put a plate in her leg after she cracked her fibula in a training crash last week.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) British Cycling?s coaching and medical staff, Laws and other experts will meet to discuss how best to put her Olympic Games preparation back on track.
BC is even investigating the potential benefits of Laws training on a stationary bike on one leg until her damaged leg recovers sufficiently.
Performance director Dave Brailsford said: ?There has been some studies into the training benefits being transferred from one leg to another, so if the experts decide it?s beneficial, we?ll build a one-legged ergo for her.”
Although not ideal the primary function of the bone Laws has broken is to stabilise the leg when it moves laterally. BC hopes that from a cycling point-of-view she will be able to train properly within a week or so.
?It?s not all doom and gloom, that?s for sure. We’ve got everyone working on it,? said Brailsford.
Laws is a relatively new addition to British Cycling’s team, coming to the attention after getting second place in the Australian national road race championships in January. She made her GB debut at Flèche Wallonne in April and then finished in the top ten at the Tour de l’Aude in May.
She was recently crowned national 25-mile time trial champion but crashed in training in Abergavenny last week when she hit a pothole.
