Sad - and ironic too. I think the British teams train on the roads in Belgium to avoid the congestion and aggro in the UK.

I hope the riders recover quickly.

How awful. Sounds like at least one of them could have her cycling future jeopardised.

Hannah Mayho has one broken leg, not both as originally reported. Reminds me of the fatal incident in 2005 with the Australian women's squad. :'(

I too thought of the Amy Gillett incident.

Frightening stuff.
