Read Complete Article Here

 John-Lee Augustyn will return to professional cycling next year with Team MTN-Qhubeka. The South African returns to the sport after spending time off the bike to recover from a hip injury he sustained while racing as a professional.

Augustyn turned professional with Team Barloworld in 2007 and remained there until 2009 before joining Team Sky at its inception. However, he never fully recovered from a crash in 2007 in which he damaged the head of his femur.

He eventually underwent a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing in 2011 and last year decided to take time off the bike to allow his body to recover. After itching to get back to racing, Augustyn has spent time training in Italy and has undergone several medical tests with Team MTN-Qhubeka.

"I'm really happy and motivated," said Augustyn. "My family and I have made tough choices and sacrifices in the last few years and now they are paying off. I feel I am back where I belong. To be a professional bike rider is a privilege and I’m very proud to be a member of a team from my own country."

Team Principal, Douglas Ryder said we have done a thorough check on his health and he is ready and motivated to get back to the highest levels of world cycling again and we are happy we can give him this chance.
