The Dutch cyclist is back from injury and ready to win. First stop: the inner tube changing world cup.

She's on the comeback trail is Marianne Vos. The finest cyclist of her generation, multi-discipline world champion, and now competitive inner tube inflator; the Dutchwoman has had a busy day.

Earlier on Vos announced that she's back in training after suffering a string of injuries that have kept her out of competition for the majority of 2015 via a video which you can watch below.

Another video has emerged showing the double Olympic gold medalist competing in an inner tube changing competition with fellow Dutch cyclist Roxane Knetemann.

You'd suppose, given Vos's winning pedigree, that she'd thrash Knetemann in any sort of race. The truth is that this particular competition was something of a nailbiter. Click play on the video below, and make of it what you will.

We're not entirely sure who won. Did race leader Knetemann's inner tube explode? Does that count as a disqualification? I guess we'll never know.

Either way, we're pretty sure both women would thrash our favourite mechanic and seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. Check out his how-to on changing inner tubes by clicking the link below.

Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.

Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.

When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
