    £15,000 payout for veteran cyclist hurt in crash

    £15,000 payout for veteran cyclist hurt in crash

    Veteran British cyclist Brian Robinson has received £15,000 in compensation after he was injured in a road traffic accident.

    The 84-year-old was left with a fractured collarbone and ribs, a punctured lung and a deep cut to his arm when he was involved in a collision with a car in West Yorkshire last year.

    Robinson, who was the first Briton to win a Tour de France stage, in 1958, and still rides 80 miles a week, was out cycling with friends in Thornhill on July 16 when a car pulled out in front of him, knocking him to the ground.

    Back in the saddle

    The road accident happened less than a fortnight after the former road racer was one of the guests of honour at the start of the Tour de France in his home county of Yorkshire.

    But the incident did not deter Robinson, from Mirfield, who was back in the saddle just six weeks after the collision.

    He said that although he would have preferred it if the incident had not happened, he has been “pleasantly surprised” by how his case has been handled through his British Cycling membership.

    “I have had a great medical once-over and I am obviously pleased with the compensation which has enabled me to get back on my bike as quickly as possible,” he says.

    Legal claim for bicycle accident

    Robinson’s lawyers said he has received £15,000 in bicycle injury compensation for the costs of his bike and his injuries.
