Kate Courtney has broken her arm following a crash during the second round of the XC World Cup in Nove Mesto.
The last round of this year's XC World Cup was a tough one for Kate Courtney with a small crash early in the race and multiple mechanical issues. After arriving back home she has now found out that the crash was a little harder than she first fought.
Kate has announced on social media that her arm is broken following the fall with a non-displaced fracture of her ulna, a bone found in the forearm. While she can't get up to her usual mid-season training Kate does say that she can still carefully go out for rides on her road bike while the bone heals.Update:
After reaching out to Kate for more information about how this may affect her season, she told Pinkbike the injury should be fully healed in four to six weeks with no change to her Olympic plans. We're wishing Kate a speedy recovery and hope to see her back racing soon.
