Downhill champ Rachel Atherton crashed head on into a truck, destroying her carbon Cervelo. You can see more of the bike in this Youtube interview. More info in the news story. She is from Britian but was riding in the US, it sounds like she forgot to ride on the correct side of the road and they both she and the truck swerved to the same side of the road. With no helmet she's lucky to to have relatively minor injuries.
