Injury Update

I have received a lot of messages asking how I am after my crash on Saturday evening so thought I would give a quick update.

I crashed on the last lap of the Womens GP crit around St James’ Park after there had been a touch of wheels ahead of me and another rider came down. It is just one of those things that can happen during racing. I went over the handle bars and landed heavily on my head and my left shoulder. I was attended to at the scene and then taken to St Thomas’ hospital where I had x-rays and they confirmed I had broken my left clavicle and would require surgery. I was kept in overnight for observation due to my head injury before returning home Sunday morning.

I have an appointment with a specialist in Manchester and I’m due to have the operation on Thursday to put a plate in my collar bone. It is too early to say when I will be back on the bike so we will re-assess after Thursday.

Many thanks to everyone for their kind messages.
