Former British road champion, Sharon Laws returned to racing last weekend after recovering from a broken collarbone. Laws finished the Trofeo Binda World Cup race in 59th position, 6.46 behind winner Lizzie Armitstead (Boels-Dolmans).

Laws, who won the nationals in 2012 at Ampleforth, sustained the injury in a crash during the opening stage of the Ladies tour of Qatar, her first race with new team Bigla. The injury was adjacent to a previous break which was plated, making an operation difficult and extending her recovery time.
