Good news emerged from the UAE Team Emirates camp, 4 weeks after his crash at Liège-Bastogne-Liège he has returned to riding on the road, and will soon travel to an altitude training camp where he will prepare for the Tour de France.
"Recap of a few weeks of work done at home. Many hours of rehab sessions and more hours on the indoor trainer," Pogacar wrote in an Instagram post. "But with plenty of fun in between. Thanks to everyone for all the support."

In the post Pogacar shares pictures of him riding in a time-trial bike in the roads around Monaco, where he resides. After suffering several wrist fractures in a tough crash at La Doyenne, the recovery period was stated to be around 5 or 6 weeks. He has taken some rest and since gotten on the bike but at home, but this week has marked a new step in his recovery.
Whilst still having protective gear in his wrist, the Slovenian could enjoy getting back to the road, just over a month left for the Tour de France. He is expected to have an altitude camp over the following weeks, and then do a recon of some stages of the Grand Boucle. The team has had to cancel a stint of aero testing that was scheduled for May, but there is still time to work on his form ahead of the Tour whilst competition is likely out of the table.
