Its been 9.5weeks since Lukas Hoffman broke his collarbone after being blown off his bike in atrocious race conditions at the Portarlington triathlon back in March. Next weekend Lukas races the Kraichgau 70.3 in Germany. Lukas's comeback to full training has been pretty remarkable. Just the day after the crash out of hospital Lukas told me he had been scouring tri forums looki ...
