Injuries

Collided with a car during a morning training ride, travelling at 50km/h. "I had a hematoma on my thigh and a bashed knee, but thankfully I avoided serious injury." Left five days later with the Australian track team to London for the World Championships. (sbs.com.au, 22 Feb 2016; cyclingnews.com, 17 Feb 2016)


Reason: Started cycling at 13, when the South Australian Sports Institute tested students at her primary school and identified her as having the physical attributes to have a potential career in cycling. "I was a little disappointed. To me, cycling was just a recreational activity. It was a vehicle." (annetteedmondson.com, 6 Jun 2017 cyclingnews.com, 14 Feb 2017)
