Former World Champion and World Cup winner Missy Giove is on the road to recovery after a 19 January training accident, near her home at Durango, Colorado, in which she sprained ligaments in both knees and cracked the head of her right tibia.
The injuries were sustained when she crashed her bicycle and slid over a ledge. No surgery was, or is, required and the initial prognonis was for full recovery six to eight weeks after the accident.
Specifically, the injuries are sprains of the anterior and posteriorcruciate ligaments in Missy's left leg, as well as the cracked tibia.
In her right leg, she sustained a sprain to the medial collateral ligament.
In a statement made on 6 February, Missy said: "Rehab is ahead ofschedule, as I anticipated, and my therapists and I have an off-road goal of 24 Feb. I am confident that I will be able to attain thisgoal."
