Totschnig out with shattered collarbone

Team Elk Haus' Harald Totschnig will be out of action with a shattered collarbone for at least two months, the team announced Thursday. The 33 year-old suffered the injury in a crash in the second stage of the Giro del Trentino.

"I started an attack with two other riders," he said. "My front wheel slipped away in an oil puddle and I landed with my shoulder on the pavement." The Austrian flew home Wednesday and was operated on the same night, with a metal plate being inserted. "The care in Italy was really bad. Fortunately the operation in Austria went fine," said Elk Haus team manager Bernhard Rassinger.
