Junior cyclo-cross world champion Shirin van Anrooij (Telenet Baloise Lions) is now back home in the Netherlands, recovering from her injuries sustained in a crash soon after the start of the elite women's race at the opening round of the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup in Tabor, in the Czech Republic, last weekend.

Although it's been widely reported that her injury was as a result of her being cut by either her or a competitor's disc brake, Van Anrooij still doesn't really know what happened.
