Gavin Mannion returned to riding the trainer this week after crashing and breaking his wrist at the Longmont Criterium on Sunday, July 10th.  The Human Powered Health pro had surgery on Thursday, July 14th to repair his radius and styloid. Former professional cyclist Chris Stockburger of the Orthopedic and Spine Center of the Rockies installed several screws to aid in the healing process. Until this point, Gavin had kept the trainer rides pretty short and mellow to keep the wound clean and free of sweat. With a new hard brace custom molded to be able to hold road handlebars and some handlebar modifications, he hopes to put in some harder trainer rides starting this weekend. He’ll stay off the roads for another three weeks and should be cleared to return to racing by September 1st.
