Australian mountain bike champion Chris Jongewaard has sustained minor injuries after a car door was opened in front of him during a training ride in Adelaide, South Australia this morning (Thursday). Jongewaard was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with a gash to his upper arm and is likely to be off the bike for at least a week.

Fortunately, the timing of the accident means Jongewaard's preparations for the upcoming road season should not be seriously disrupted. The South Australian is still expected to join his new US-based Continental team, Jittery Joe's, at the end of February.
