Veteran cyclist hurt in crash

THE world of British cycling has wished legendary rider Brian Robinson a speedy recovery after he was injured in a crash while out on his bike.

The 83-year-old, who was the first Briton to win a stage on the Tour de France in 1958, has been taken to ­hospital less than a fortnight after he was one of the guests of honour when the famous race visited his home county of Yorkshire earlier this month.

The veteran road racer was cycling with friends on Wednesday when he was hit by a car.
