Great Britain Cycling Team rider Victoria Williamson is in a stable condition after receiving fractures to her pelvis and several vertebrae in a crash at the Rotterdam Six-Day last night.

The 22-year-old, who has undergone surgery and MRI scans, also sustained a cut to her right flank in the crash with Holland's Elis Ligtlee in a sprint heat. She will remain in hospital in Rotterdam for the next few days while doctors assess her condition.

Great Britain Cycling Team sprint coach Justin Grace said: "Victoria is being very well looked after here in Rotterdam and the well-wishes people have been sending her are very much appreciated.

"She gave us all a scare last night and while her injuries are serious they are not life-threatening.

"From a performance point of view this is another injury to deal with - Victoria has a long road to recovery ahead of her but her health is the highest priority for the whole team and we'll make sure she receives the best possible care."
