Amy Pieters has been taken to the hospital after being seriously injured in what a statement from the Dutch cycling federation described as a “collision” at a training camp for the Dutch national track team near Calpe, Spain.
According to the statement, the 30-year-old Dutchwoman lost consciousness and was airlifted to the hospital. She then underwent surgery on her head.
SD Worx did not provide any further information on her status.
“We are currently unable to make any further announcements about the accident and ask everyone to respect the privacy of those involved,” said the Dutch cycling federation.
“Of course, our thoughts are with Amy and her loved ones at the moment.”
