Helen he finished the race !!!
A top cyclist who crashed as he raced behind British champion Sir Chris Hoy was skewered with a 20cm splinter - but got back on his bike to finish an amazing THIRD.
Azizulhasni Awang was in the final bend of a world title race yesterday, when four of the six riders crashed in a scene of carnage behind Sir Chris, the winner.
The 23-year-old's calf was skewered by a shard of Siberian pine from the track, but he recovered to remount his bike and take third place, behind Sir Chris and Jason Niblett in the men's Keirin final at the Track World Cup.
