U.S. road champion Timmy Duggan (Saxo-Tinkoff) suffered a fractured collarbone in a crash at the Santos Tour Down Under on Thursday. Duggan crashed heavily during stage 3 and left the race.

“Thx for the good words everyone. For sure broken collarbone, currently evaluating couple other issues as well. But I’m fairly OK. Stay tuned,” Duggan wrote overnight on Twitter.

Saxo director Fabrizio Guidi said Duggan was conscious before being transported to an area hospital.

“Timmy went down in a roundabout about 2km to go on the circuit. We don’t know what happened, if he hit a curb or perhaps crossed a tire. He was conscious and the doctors were helping immediately,” said Guidi. “He was banged up, grabbing his shoulder. We do not know now. He has been taken to the hospital.”
