Just seven days after the original incident, Dowsett is back on his home trainer in preparation for his Hour attempt – and giving the camera a thumb’s up.
“Alex Dowsett is already on the trainer,” said his Movistar team via Twitter. “Just seven days after his collarbone fracture. This is why cyclists are heroes!”
Dowsett and Movistar are still hoping to make the record attempt on February 27 at the Lee Valley Velodrome in London. Both are waiting to see how his injury heals, and whether his fitness is still on track after the enforced break.
