England cyclist Matt Walls crashed into the crowd during the final lap of the men’s 15km scratch race, leaving one young fan “covered in blood”.
Medical teams rushed onto the track and the race was abandoned as a second cyclist, Matt Bostock from the Isle of Man, was taken away on a stretcher.
One fan had to be helped away in a wheelchair after Walls landed in the crowd and was “covered in blood”, according to The Sun.
The Lee Valley VeloPark in London, one of the venues for Birmingham’s Commonwealth Games, was cleared of fans and all racing stopped.
The 24-year-old Olympic champion was trying to avoid riders who had fallen in a crash lower down the banking but as he rode up, he clipped another wheel and went over the top.
He was treated by medical teams onsite for 40 minutes.
“Matt is alert and talking (as he has been throughout) and is being given medical attention in hospital,” a Team England spokesperson said.
