An astute reader just sent of this blog, Daniel Ward, just sent us this news tip:
" Pete Jacobs is one of the up and coming stars of triathlon. This season had panned out well for him with the announcement that he had joined Team Abu Dhabi ahead of the first ever Abu Dhabi Triathlon This was an ideal race for Jacob as it will suit his talents.
Today he joined the list of growing casualties this season.
"Have broken my collar bone. Locked up front wheel to avoid traffic & somersaulted. More to follow.. X- rays next.." Jacobs twittered.
"Heading home with arm in sling. Going to b completely out of action for a month or more," he later added and "First ever broken bone! It doesn't hurt much, nor did it earlier. Just uncomfortable & unmovable."
Jacobs has already finished second to Craig Alexander this season at the Australian Long Course Title in Huskisson and was amongst the favorites for the win in Abu Dhabi later this month."
