Crash Ends Uptown Bike Race, At Least 4 Injured
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Four female cyclists were injured in the Nature Valley Grand Prix in the uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis Friday evening.
Just before the cyclists began the last lap of the race, one of the cyclists in the front pack of racers fell, taking several others down with her. Among them was gold medalist Kristen Armstrong.
Four women were loaded onto stretchers with facial and leg injuries and transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. A representative from HCMC would only state that they treated the four cyclists for non-life threatening injuries.
The race was neutralized, which means they stopped the other cyclists and it will not be finished.
