Latest news of the five female riders hit by a car in Belgium

 

 

Update Monday 10th May

 

We are really pleased to be able to report that the five female British riders, who were involved in a collision with a car on Friday morning (7th May 2010) while training in Belgium, are all making great progress.

 

We caught up with Emma Trott via Facebook and she was happy to report that Hannah Mayho had taken her first steps on Monday (10th May).  Emma went on to say that she was planning to be back in training on the turbo by the end of the week!

 

Most seriously injured was 19 year old Hannah Mayho, who was originally thought to have broken both legs, along with her right arm and wrist.  It was some consolation for her to find that only one of her legs was broken and this has been pinned, while her arm and wrist are in plaster.  She is likely to remain in hospital in Oudenaarde for another week.

 

Lucy Martin has suffered a cracked vertebra, but is back in the UK and recovering at the BC Academy house, under the supervision of the GB Cycling Team doctor.

 

Katie Colclough suffered concussion and is expected to be discharged from hospital today.

 

Emma Trott has suffered a broken collarbone and a black eye, but she has been released from hospital.  She will be challenged for the honour of being first back on the turbo by Sarah Reynolds, who suffered an injury to her hand, as well as cuts and grazes.

 

All at BikeEnvy wish them a speedy recovery and a return to their cycling. 

 

We will bring you further updates as we receive them.  In the meantime, messages of support can be sent to editor@britishcycling.org.uk
