Mick Bennett, the race director of the Tour of Britain, has appealed for help in tracking down the driver of a silver Nissan Micra after he was knocked off his bike yesterday in a hit and run incident.
The 67-year-old, whose business SweetSpot also runs the Tour Series, which begin's this week, and the Women's Tour, posted details of the incident to Facebook yesterday.
Thanking the people who'd expressed concern for him on Facebook, the two-time Olympic bronze medallist added: "Thanks everyone just hope that by posting I can catch the driver. If he / she does not hand themselves in to Police."
Surrey Police can be contacted on 101.
