Trott fit to continue Tour of Britain

Double Olympic track champion Laura Trott will continue in the Women’s Tour of Britain despite a heavy crash on Friday’s third stage.

The Briton, who landed on her head, finished the stage and was taken to hospital with suspected concussion.

“I went to bed early and had a banging headache but I feel all right,” the 22-year-old told BBC Sport. “I’ve crashed before and had to race the next day.”

Saturday’s fourth stage begins in her home town of Cheshunt at 11:30 BST.

Wiggle Honda rider Trott, who spent the night at home after being released from hospital, is thrilled to be starting a stage on home territory.

“It’s amazing and starting on the front line with my sister Emma is going to be great,” she added.

Saturday’s stage finishes in Welwyn Garden City and Sunday’s finale takes the riders from Harwich to Bury St Edmunds.

Dutch rider Marianne Vos

leads the race after winning stage three.
