Not that there has been a season to speak of, but today Jan Frodeno confirmed what observers had picked up from his social posts.

The three-time Ironman World Champion is definitively out of any racing in 2020 as he heals up from injuries sustained in a bike crash descending Montseny near Barcelona with training partner Nick Kastelein.

Nick, who sustained a fractured pelvis, provided more context in his post.

Pressing the restart button on 2020 after fracturing my pelvis last week during a training ride. Both @janfrodeno and I took a tumble last week descending down from Montseny near Barcelona. Jan is dealing with his wounds in the best way possible and I am laying horizontal in a bed for the next few weeks. You never realise the true support you have until something like this happens and those closest to you rally together to help out. Forever grateful!!! I do (in a strange way!) enjoy these hurdles that life gives you so I’m already itching to start the process all over again 😉 📹 @oriol_batista @canyon @ryzon_apparel @sramroad @zippspeed @quarq @genprofessional @centrecenit @g_s_u_s @oakleybike @albertlorza @aneblnc @sara22_ @jessallen1993 @nikhowe @emma_snowsill @eduarddequintana @miquirueda

While Jan is reclusive when it comes to posting about the specific details of his training, he opened up about the crash in a few posts and stories about going to hospital for scans.

This week's MX Endurance podcast discussed this development prior to Jan's update. We wish Jan and Nick a speedy path to recovery and fitness and hope that 2021 is a better year for racing for everyone.
