Giant-Alpecin rider regaining form at Tour of California

John Degenkolb (Team Giant-Alpecin) is still recovering from a hand injury and regaining form while at the Tour of California.

Degenkolb and several teammates were involved in a serious crash last January when a motorist drove head on into the team as they were returning from a session at training camp in Calpe, Spain.

The incident nearly severed a finger on Degenkolb’s hand and he underwent delicate surgery to have the digit reattached, but it remains in a splint. The 2015 Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix victor missed the Classics this year but started racing again in early May at the Rund um den Finanzplatz Eschborn-Frankfurt.

Degenkolb discusses his comeback, the extent of his injuries and what he hopes to get out of the Amgen Tour of California.
