Young British climber Tom Gloag should be ready to return to competition in August after a year-long recovery

It will take at least another two months before Tom Gloag is available for Visma | Lease a Bike. The 22-year-old British talent was hit by a car during training at the end of August 2023, sustaining a serious knee injury. He had to go under the knife immediately. Gloag is back in full training, but for the time being his return is planned for after the Tour de France.

Initially, Gloag was expected to return at Tour de Suisse or another race around that time. According to what the team told WielerFlits, that was a cautious expectation and a lot has changed since then.

Visma | Lease a Bike emphasizes that Gloag is doing well and is therefore back in full training. However, they want to bring him carefully without rushing things. As it now appears, the British GC talent will not compete in any competitions in June. This also applies to July, because there are hardly any competitions on the calendar besides Grande Boucle.

The youngster has now completed almost a year of rehabilitation. His last race for the team was Clasica San Sebastian last July. Last year, Gloag finished eleventh in the Tour de Romandie and was rushed as a substitute for the Giro d'Italia, forming part of Primoz Roglic's overall victory.
