Defending champions Great Britain are out of the men’s team pursuit after rider Charlie Tanfield was taken to hospital following a crash in the qualification round at the Cycling World Championships.

Tanfield crashed alone on the final bend and was unable to finish, meaning Team GB did not set a qualifying time.

After receiving treatment, Tanfield was able to leave the track unassisted.

He was taken to hospital “for further treatment” said British Cycling.

The 26-year-old was competing alongside team-mates Oliver Wood, Ethan Vernon and Daniel Bigham in Glasgow.

Tanfield, Wood and Vernon finished seventh in the men’s pursuit at the Tokyo Olympics two years ago.
