André Greipel of Columbia-Highroad is back on the bike after nearly two months of recovering from a crash in the Tour Down Under. The German sprinter injured his shoulder in the accident.

"It's great that I can ride outside again," he told Cyclingnews. after passing the last month training on his stationary bike. Greipel has returned to training and rides up to four hours a day. He started strength training for his shoulder earlier this week.

The 26-year-old crashed and dislocated his shoulder, tearing a tendon and chipping a bone. He had surgery at the end of January.

"I have daily therapy for two to three hours and I think I can start racing again at the beginning of May."
