According to Team Sky doctor Derick Macleod, 'Pete attended the Santa Barbara hospital and X-rays confirmed his right clavicle is fractured. he lost some skin from his shoulder and elbow, but sustained no other injuries. He is in a sling now and getting pain relief and the plan is for him to return to the UK on Wednesday, with a view to seeing a shoulder specialist as soon as possible.'
