Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Joanna Rowsell said she was "gutted" today after breaking her collar bone during a race as part of RideLondon, the UK's largest festival of cycling.
Rowsell, who won gold in the team pursuit during last year's Games, was competing in the women's criterium race in and around St James's Park last night when she was involved in a pile-up in the final stages of the event.
The Prudential RideLondon weekend features four separate events with around 50,000 people taking part in a mass participation event that saw many of the capital's roads closed to traffic yesterday, and London mayor Boris Johnson among thousands of others taking part in a 100-mile road race today.
