Cycling news - Ethan Hayter to miss Track World Cup start after suffering concussion in car accident
Ethan Hayter has been ruled out of this weekend's Track World Cup in Berlin after failing to fully recover from a car accident earlier this month.
The 20-year-old suffered concussion after being hit by a car, and he has taken to social media to confirm he has "not quite recovered".
Hayter, who won World Championship team pursuit gold and two medals at the Commonwealth Games this year, has targeted a return in the London leg of the World Cup on December 14.
The young Londoner wrote on Instagram: "Unfortunately I won't be competing at the Berlin World Cup this week as originally announced. Sustained a concussion at the start of the month after being hit by a car and not quite recovered.
"Plan/hope to be back racing at the London round," he added.
He took a brilliant gold in the omnium at the European Championships in Glasgow in August, climbing from fifth to first in the event-concluding points race.
Hayter finished eighth in the Under-23 road race at the road world championships in Innsbruck earlier this year, but Great Britain will still have a 17-strong team in Germany.
