After the race in Nove Mesto, she posted on her Instagram:

My crash in Nove Mesto was a little harder than I thought and resulted in a non displaced fracture of my ulna. The good news is I can still train comfortably on the road with this splint but am making sure to be cautious and allow it to heal as quickly as possible. I am so grateful to the team around me for helping manage this injury and keep me charging forward.
