Peaty limps off to France to continue World Cup challengeSteve was just packing his van to drive to Alpe D'Huez when I called. How are you feeling mate?
"Pissed off. I could have got away with the wrist, but the ankle is black and fat and swollen.
"It's a good sign that the bruising is coming out quick. Nothing to do but keep the foot up and let time heal."
You have to drive to the race though.
"No, Andy Kiffen is with me, he'll have to drive. And then I'll not practise all that much and hope. I'm a lot luckier than Lopes, he busted his ankle. He's been recuperating at my place and just left this afternoon."
I hear you were sharing an ankle brace with Rob Warner, you must have been desperate.
"It was pretty bad!"
It was some effort to make 19th, did it help?
"It got me a few more points I'm on 52 points over all at the moment so yes, it was worth all the grief."
