Victoria Pendleton says her ambition to ride at the Cheltenham Festival is undimmed despite a fall in her debut as a National Hunt rider.

The Olympic cycling champion was unseated from Pacha du Polder this afternoon at Fakenham after another horse jumped across her.

But she tells Sky Sports News, it's not put her off.

"As we both came over the fence and landed, it just bumped me to one side. So I didn't have all four feet on the ground yet and just came out the side door. It's one of those things. It's racing. It's what happens and it doesn't always go to plan," she said.
