The former Miss said she wanted to make something of her biking, “I was super excited and right now I can’t do anything for at least a few days” but says she is fine, “they already sewed me” (got stitches) of her somewhat deep cuts, so she had to be more careful.

“It was a big scare because I’m literally learning, but I think it was overconfidence,” said Natalia.

She explained that everything was going well, almost at the end of her ride, on a flat area, going a little too fast, feeling confident, didn’t see the tree stump.

The bike handle dug into her groin. “There was nothing I could do, luckily the clinic was close by,” said the former Miss and TV host.
