New Zealand's only current world champion Cameron Cole returned home Thursday for an operation to heal dislocated bones in his left hand and a broken arm.

Cole, the current junior men's downhill mountain bike world champion and highest world ranked New Zealand men's downhill biker at 17th, was training for last weekend's NMBS race in Utah when the accident happened.

Cole expects to be fit in time for the 2007 world championships in Scotland in September.
