Wales' Nicole Cooke crashed out of the Holland Ladies Tour on Tuesday as rain continued to dog the six-day event.
Nicole Cooke escaped with cuts and bruises from her crash
As the race dipped briefly into Belgium for the second stage, Cooke suffered cuts and bruises as a heavy fall saw her bike and helmet smashed.
Cooke will stay in Holland for the next round of the World Cup on Sunday, the Lowland Rotterdam Tour.
T-Mobile's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg won Tuesday's stage on a tough undulating circuit in Asse, close to Brussels.
But first-day winner Regina Schleicher retained the overall lead after the Nurnberger Cycling rider came in fifth.
On Monday's opening stage Cooke had negotiated the tricky conditions, which also saw several crashes.
But the 23-year-old from Wick was given no chance on Tuesday when a crash in front of her left Cooke no time to avoid the resulting pile of bodies and bikes.
Cooke entered the tour event in good form, having stretched her overall World Cup lead with third place in Saturday's Grand Prix de Plouay.
If other results go her way in the Lowland Rotterdam Tour, then Cooke could be crowned World Cup champion in the penultimate round of the 12-race series.
The Holland Ladies Tour concludes on Saturday in Heerlen with a 110.4km stage.
