Two And A Half Men star Jon Cryer underwent three gruelling months of rehab treatment following a terrifying cycling accident last year (12).
The actor was taking part in California's Nautica Malibu Triathlon, which includes an ocean swim, an 18-mile (28.9-kilometre) cycle ride and a four-mile (6.4-kilometre) run, when he fell off his bike during the second challenge.
He pulled out of the race and was treated for severe skin lacerations, and the funnyman has now revealed it took months of painful therapy to get him back on his feet.
However, Cryer refused to let the accident stop him competing in this year's (13) event, and he returned to the race over the weekend (07-08Sep13).
Speaking after completing the course, he told Tmz.com, "I made it! I retained most of my skin this year. So it's good... I had three months of rehab (after the crash)."
Asked whether he is planning to take part in the 2014 race, he adds, "Yes, I will be back."
