BREAKING: Katie Archibald crashes out of the Tour de Yorkshire

Katie Archibald has crashed out of the Tour de Yorkshire and it looks like she will not be returning to the race.

The 24-Year old Scot, representing team Wiggle High5, hit her head and hurt her shoulder in the crash at around 10am.

She is heading to hospital for a check-up.

The rider, who won gold at Rio in the women’s team pursuit, undoubtedly would have played a key part in helping Elise Longo Borghini in her efforts to win the stage.

This leaves Wiggle at a massive disadvantage as only 6 ride are allowed to race per team.
