Luke Rowe was Team Sky’s road captain at the Tour de France

Welsh cyclist Luke Rowe is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken leg and was back on his bike on Saturday.

The Team Sky rider, 27, fractured his tibia and fibula while white-water rafting during his brother’s stag party in the Czech capital Prague in August.

Rowe had feared he could be out for a year but tested his leg at the Wales National Velodrome in Newport.

“Big day for me, first time on the pushy for three months,” Rowe tweeted.
