You'll be fine, CF bikes aren't as fragile as some people make them out to be. In fact, with no danger of crashing, your bike should be safer on the trainer than outside.

I used a CF on a trainer last winter with no problem.

the trainer should attach to a skewer and not touch your frame... it wont be harmed.
