This is one of the worst roadie Endos I've ever seen. She was in the lead in the Rio olympics on the final downhill only 5 miles from a possible gold medal and she locked up the front wheel.



She is expected to recover, but she was unconscious for some time. She has three minor breaks in her lumbar vertebrae but the breaks are minor and aren't expected to cause lasting issues.

Yeah, that looks painful. They cut away to the group behind her and when they passed her she still wasn't moving. The American woman was soooo close. 1st to 4th in a blink.

Yeah, it looks like she panicked after she drifted the back wheel and started heading toward the curb.
