While leading the women’s road race competition with under seven miles to go, Dutch cyclist Annemiek van Vleuten crashed heading downhill.
Van Vleuten was leading the 85-mile race at the time. The Dutch Cycling Federation announced she was conscious following the accident and headed to the hospital. Van Vleuten was later diagnosed with a concussion and three spinal fractures, according to Dutch outlet NOS. She is in the hospital in intensive-care.
Cameras captured the crash, which happened as she went around a curve, careening into the curb headfirst and laying motionless.
Van Vleuten tweeted later Sunday that she “will be fine.”
I am now in the hospital with some injuries and fractures, but will be fine. Most of all super disappointed after best race of my career.— Annemiek van Vleuten (@AvVleuten) August 8, 2016
