Dutch cyclist Annemiek van Vleuten crashes on treacherous descent

Annemiek van Vleuten of the Netherlands was conscious and responsive after a spectacular crash in the women's Olympic road race Sunday that helped countrywoman Anna van der Breggen claim gold.

Van Vleuten was leading American rider Mara Abbott down the Vista Chinesa climb when she came to the last hard corner. She appeared to lock up her breaks and skidded into the curb on the outside of it, crashing to the ground in an eerily similar scene to the men's race the previous day.

Italian rider Vincenzo Nibali was leading that race when he crashed, breaking his collarbone.

The same descent claimed several other riders in the men's race, though it appeared that van Vleuten was the only rider in the women's field who crashed hard on it.
