Chris Froome's recovery from a serious crash is "ahead of schedule" according to Team Ineos boss Sir Dave Brailsford.
The four-time Tour de France winner, 34, broke his neck, femur, elbow, hip and ribs in the accident on 12 June.
"He's managed to turn a pedal now with his other leg. He's well ahead of where he was hoping to be," said Brailsford.
Speaking to the BBC's Sportsweek program, Brailsford added: "In typical Chris Froome fashion, he's putting everything into his recovery.
"Hopefully we'll see him back at the Tour de France next year."
Froome's team-mate Egan Bernal is set to become the youngest Tour winner for 110 years on Sunday with another Team Ineos rider, defending champion Geraint Thomas, second.
