Team Sky rider Luke Rowe has broken his right leg during a white-water rafting trip and is set for a lengthy lay-off. The 27-year-old, who sustained fractures to his tibia and fibula, has begun his recovery process in Cardiff after undergoing a surgery. His coach Rod Ellingworth called it a serious injury. Rowe, Team Sky’s road captain, rode on with a broken rib during the opening stage of the Tour de France to help Chris Froome win the title last month.
