GB coach hopes to attend weekend track event

British Cycling head coach Shane Sutton has left hospital after being hit by a vehicle whilst cycling last week. He expects to attend the track World Cup meet in Glasgow this coming weekend.

Sutton suffered bleeding on the brain after being hit in Levenshulme. He remained in hospital a few days for scans and tests. He is said to have been wearing a helmet, but fell heavily on his head. A police inquiry into the incident is underway.

His accident happened less than 24 hours after British rider Bradley Wiggins was also struck by a vehicle. The Tour de France and Olympics Games winner suffered a fractured rib, bruised lung and dislocated finger.

Sutton, 55, is Wiggins' coach at Sky and British Cycling. He led the national team to 12 gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics.
