Pete Williams well on the road to recovery

Southport-based cyclist Pete Williams continued his recuperation from a horrific road accident in Majorca last month by finishing second at the Sheffrec CC Spring Road Race at the weekend in Yorkshire.

The Motorpoint Pro-Cycling rider was involved in a serious collision with a car while training in the Balearics with the Sky Velo Team, which required him to be hospitalised. However, less than four weeks after the crash, the 24 year-old is back in the saddle and training hard for the forthcoming Tour Doon Hame in Scotland at the end of April.

Says Pete: “Last weekend’s race at Old Hutton was the killer. I had only got back on the bike four days before and it’s difficult course at the best of times. Then I was at the Sheffrec this weekend and came second. I feel I should have won it but you always feel that way when you’re in one of the big teams like Motorpoint.”

“I’m having an operation on my nose which might set me back a little bit, but it’ll be worth it. I’ll be going to race in Scotland with the team for the first time at the end of this month and I can’t wait. It’ll be great to race in a team again and I should be back to full strength in time for the Halfords Tour Series in May.”
