More than five months after her last competitive appearance, 2014 world road race champion Pauline Ferrand-Prevot is set to return to action at the Strade Bianche having recovered from a double fracture of the tibial plateau. The 24-year-old Frenchwoman picked up the injury when she crashed while training in November. She had to write off the whole cyclo-cross campaign and with it her hopes of defending the world cyclo-cross title.
