Here’s an inside look at British cross-country mountain bike racer Oli Beckingsale’s rehabilitation from the broken leg he suffered on the circuit this season.


35-year-old Beckingsale fractured the neck of his left femur in what he describes as a fairly innocuous fall during the Nove Mesto World Cup round in August. He is spending much of his close season building back up from what was a serious injury, with hours of Wattbike training and gym sessions ahead. He’s not allowing the injury to set him back though, and is taking it as an opportunity to strengthen the parts of his his body that are neglected during the season and return to action all the better for it. We’ll be bringing you more from his recovery in the coming weeks.
