IN THIS EDITION:  Hubb Suffers Broken Foot, PLC and Schenker Win at La Salie Pro, Ohhara wins Nijima Pro.


HUBB SUFFERS BROKEN FOOT

 
  HAWAII-  3x World Champion Jeff Hubbard has suffered a broken foot.  Here is what he had to say on his Facebook page (April 15th):  "It's official I broke my talus bone in my foot. The talus is a major weight bearing bone in your foot that supports your ankle. I broke it whilst landing an air revo at Black Rock yesterday. My foot came down too early in the rotation as I whipped the spin to fast. My foot went straight in to dry rock and all my weight and momentum from the fall on impact broke my bone. Three months with my weight off of the foot. Conservatively Looking at JULY 15 to be back at it again."  Given that timeframe, it seems rather unlikely that we will see Hub at the world tour's first two events at Itacoatiara (Brazil, July 2nd-12th) or Arica (Chile, July 17th-26th).  Heal up quick, Jeff!
