"The Australian summer of racing has always been such an important part of my season, and although I’ve accepted this new change in plans, I also feel a small sense of missing out."

Simon Gerrans, absent last week at the Tour Down Under because of an injury, has joined his Orica GreenEDGE Cycling team in Alicante, Spain, where he tried to prepar of the best ways this 2015 year. The Australian rider hopes to be competitive his spring. Indeed, he will focus only on Classics.

 

On his website, Gerrans told about his training camp: “Team camp has been a really positive experience. This is one of the few times that I have ever been at a camp this early in the season. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to do long rides and some harder training alongside tweaking the time trial position, working on the bike set-up and adjusting a new pair of Shimano race shoes.”

 

Simon Gerrans crashed this December during a mountain bike training. He suffered broken collarbone. He was forced to miss Australian championships and the Santos Tour Down Under. “The shoulder is coming along really well. Rest and recovery combined with rehab has allowed me to strengthen the shoulder and return to a good range of my motion. My hip had been the other cause for concern. Four weeks post-crash, and all the bruising has finally disappeared. I’m happy with the progression and have very few restrictions remaining at this point.”

 

He explained also that he is late from two months about his program. “I’m essentially doing the sort of training now that I would normally do in late November. It won’t be too long before I begin to ramp up the intensity for everything I’m targeting in March and April.”

 

“It’s been a bit of a weird experience for me,” Gerrans said. “The Australian summer of racing has always been such an important part of my season, and although I’ve accepted this new change in plans, I also feel a small sense of missing out. I’ve noticed my attitude about it all is naturally a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I’m quite happy with my current plan and the work that I’m doing at camp, but when I jump online and read about the Tour Down Under, I find myself wishing I was there.”
