There has been a third horrific crash in as many days at the Birmingham Velodrome with Indian Meenakshi brutally knocked down on the track.
Meenakshi was competing in the women’s 10k scratch race at the Commonwealth Games when she fell off her bike after being cut by a Welsh rider.
As she slid down the track, New Zealander Bryony Botha had nowhere to go.

Botha couldn’t avoid Meenakshi and drove his bike straight into the rider in a nasty collision.
The doctors took care of the two runners who could not finish the race, finally won by the Englishwoman Laura Kenny.
Botha walked away from the track but Meenakshi was taken away on a stretcher.
Earlier in the programme, England’s Matt Walls flew into the crowd and a fan was wheeled away in a wheelchair in dramatic scenes.
Joe Truman was left unconscious earlier after an unpleasant incident involving Australian Matt Glaetzer.
