Scully Nails Contract at Slipstream
16 Nov, 2010
Young Kiwi Talent Tom Scully will see his 2011 season go from a track focus to road as the BikeNZ track rider gets ready for his first season in the big league with Garmin.  After suffering a horrific accident in the FBD Insurance Ras earlier this year when he hit a power pole at 60 km/h the Southland cyclist underwent three operations on a seriously damaged knee and tendons, with initial reports suggesting he would be out of the sport for a year.

His rehabilitation in Christchurch at the New Zealand Academy of Sport under BikeNZ head physiotherapist Mark Hollands was long and tough but the rewards now seem great for the promising kiwi.

"I spent a full day there every day. My day would include a spin bike session, gym work, core strength work, weights, physio and massage on the leg and lots of aqua jogging," Scully explained to Cyclingnews.

"I had the best treatment and I did absolutely everything I could to make sure I could come back as soon as possible and in good shape."

Scully joins compatriot Julian Dean at the team, which will be known as Garmin-Cervélo in 2011
