British cyclist Lizzie Armitstead crashed while celebrating winning the first stage of the Women’s Tour of Britain on Wednesday and will now miss the rest of the event.
After crossing the line with her arms in the air in the eastern England town of Aldeburgh, the 2012 Olympic road race silver medalist loses control, takes down about a dozen other riders and clips a few photographers in the process.
Armitstead was taken to a hospital but was later released without any serious injuries.
She later tweeted out to her fans.
I remember winning with the help of my team mates and then not much else, but I am ok, nothing broken just very sore, thank you for all your— Lizzie Armitstead (@L_ArmiTstead) June 17, 2015
kind messages and to the NHS staff who took care of me so well. I won't start tomorrow in the hope of recovering properly for the Nationals.— Lizzie Armitstead (@L_ArmiTstead) June 17, 2015
