JUST over a month after being left with a broken pelvis after being hit by a car during a training ride, star Bathurst cyclist Mark Renshaw has gotten back on his bike.
It shows that his recovery from the December 1 incident is progressing well.
However, Renshaw is still disappointed that he was clipping on his helmet in Bathurst on the weekend instead of doing it in Adelaide.
That is where the Tour Down Under is being contested, an event Renshaw had planned to ride for his Dimension Data team.
Only twice since 2002 have I not been part of the @tourdownunder Sitting here at home hurts like hell but I have to be happy as I’m back on the road training and working towards my first races. Good luck to @teamdidata crew, wish I was there 👊 pic.twitter.com/FcfMJNIy2g— Mark Renshaw (@Mark_Renshaw) January 12, 2019
Renshaw is a former Tour Down Under stage winner and wearer of the leader’s ochre jersey. This year is only the second time since his debut in 2002 that he has missed the event, a virus ruling him out in 2009.
“Sitting here at home hurts like hell, but I have to be happy as I’m back on the road training and working towards my first races,” Renshaw tweeted.
“I wish I was there with sore legs, heat scorched feet, sat in those small mini vans.”
