Crash brings down 2018 National Champion on day two of the Lexus Of Blackburn Bay Crits, while Hosking and White win and grab yellow
A crash on the final lap of the women's Lexus of Blackburn Bay Crits has likely ended 2018 National Road Race Champion SHANNON MALSEED's summer campaign, after she was transported to hospital via ambulance. The Lexus team rider was involved in a crash with Brit MOLLY PATCH (Appselec) and EMMA CHILTON (Roxsolt Attaquer). Both of those riders were treated on site, and will be further assessed.
Malseed was conscious on the back straight, but in clear distress with medical diagnosis still underway at hospital to establish the full extent of her injuries - early reports indicator a suspected shoulder injury.
THE BAY CRITS ARE BACK
The Lexus of Blackburn Bay Crits has been the event that kicks off the cycling year for more than 28 years, and is back in January 2020.
