Luke Rowe on Saturday took his first spin on a bike since suffering major leg injuries in August.

The Team Sky rider fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a whitewater rafting accident while on his brother's stag do, barely two weeks after helping Chris Froome to his fourth Tour de France title.

Rowe has been undertaking an intensive recovery programme but enjoyed a few laps of the velodrome in Newport on Saturday morning.

"Big day for me, first time on the pushy for 3 months. Few clicks on the boards, mega", the Welshman tweeted.

When Rowe first suffered the injury, it was thought he could spend up to a year out of competition, and three months on he still does not have a clear date to return.

"I haven't really set myself a date, a race or a target, I've just said get back as soon as I can," he said in video posted by Team Sky.

"Everyone knows I've got a love for the Classics, but I don't think it's realistic to be there, and that's going to be hard."
