Oli Beckingsale

Here’s part four of the series following British cross-country mountain bike racer Oli Beckingsale’s rehabilitation from the broken leg he suffered on the circuit last season.


The 35-year-old fractured the neck of his left femur in what he described as a fairly innocuous fall during the Nove Mesto World Cup round last August. He has spent much of his close season building back up from what was a serious injury, with hours of Wattbike training and gym sessions now behind him.

In the latest installment, Beckingsale’s surgeon talks in-depth about the cross-country star’s injury and why they had to tread carefully in his recovery process.
