Magnus Ditlev is officially OUT of Sunday’s huge T100 Singapore showdown.

The Danish superstar was on a high when he arrived in Asia on the back of that brilliant season-opening victory to kick off the much-hyped new series in Miami last month.

But on Tuesday disaster struck for the brilliant 26-year-old when he slipped on a speed bump and crashed his bike, causing injuries which necessitated a trip to a local hospital.

Scans showed that Ditlev had sustained a fractured wrist, putting his participation on Sunday in major doubt. At that stage he told TRI247 he would make a final decision on Saturday, but on Friday we got the news all triathlon fans feared.

Ditlev confirms Singapore DNS

Writing on Instagram, Magnus revealed: “Unfortunately, it hasn’t been the race week I had hoped for here at @t100triathlon Singapore.

“I crashed on my bike Tuesday afternoon and have spent the week trying to recover from that. Scans from hospital show a fracture in my left wrist of the scaphoid bone along with some other very sore parts of the body.

“I can’t hold onto my bike yet, and as I don’t want to risk anything regarding the rest of the season, I unfortunately have to withdraw from what seems to be great racing in Singapore.

“It hurts as I had looked forward to racing here, but health comes first. Good luck to everyone racing, I’ll be cheering instead!”
