Trainers trying to raise the next generation of great Manx cyclists have confirmed they’ll concentrate on showing people how not to fall off in future.

It’s after Isle of Man cycling legend Mark Cavendish fell off his bike and injured himself again – the latest in a string of such incidents.

A spokesman for Island cycling said “In the past, we’ve taught people to ride at a snail’s pace, three abreast, during rush hour on the TT course.

“However, we’re becoming aware of a basic lack of competency in core skills such as remaining upright – we’ll be trying to make sure our competitors can cope with such demands in future.”
