Reporter Ellis Barker told the East Anglian Daily Times: "The fall caused several crashes behind her.
"Paramedics are currently giving her gas and air and I think she may have broken something. She looks seriously injured. They’ve put a neck brace on and she’s on a drip. It was awful."
British Cycling have since released a statement:
