- Para-cyclist Jody Cundy sets new world record in Glasgow
Great Britain crashed out of the men’s team pursuit on the opening day of the UCI World Cycling Championships in Glasgow, after the 26-year-old rider Charlie Tanfield fell in the qualifiers in the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome.
The defending champions looked set to breeze into the medal rounds before Tanfield’s crash reduced the starting quartet to only two riders, forcing their elimination from the competition. Although he walked away from the scene, Tanfield was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a concussion.
