Peter Kennaugh, Tour du Haut Var 2010, stage one

Sky lost another rider to a fractured collarbone today in Siena, Italy. Just as Kurt-Asle Arvesen is making his way back from a crash at the Tour of Qatar, Brit Peter Kennaugh is on his way out after a crash in Strade Bianche.

"He's in hospital now," said Sports Director Marcus Ljungqvist after the race. "It's bad news, but that's how it is. He's a strong little guy, he'll be back."
