Marcus Burghardt is back on his bike after injuring his knee in a training accident last month. "He is back in training," Team High Road spokesman Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews Monday morning.

The 24 year-old rammed his right knee into his handlebars when the chain slipped off the chain ring at full speed at an unofficial training camp on Mallorca the beginning of December. He suffered bruises and a light haemorrhage.

Burghardt, who won Gent-Wevelgem last year, is expected to lead Team High Road in the Spring Classics. He had surgery on his left knee in 2006.
