Olympic team pursuit champion and Wiggle-Honda professional rider Joanna Rowsell will have surgery to fit a plate to her collarbone after crashing during Saturday's RideLondon Grand Prix.
Rowsell was caught up in a late crash during the fast-paced circuit race in St James's Park, London, and landed heavily on her head and left shoulder.
X-rays at St Thomas's hospital ascertained that she had snapped her clavicle, and she stayed in overnight as a precaution.
Rowsell confirmed via her website on Monday that she is back home but scheduled to visit a specialist in Manchester and have corrective surgery on Thursday.
Rowsell's Wiggle-Honda team-mate Laura Trott took the victory in the race. Trott commented on Rowsell's injury after her win: "It really hurts me. She doesn't even actually like the road that much so that's sad. She's such a great racer."
