The veteran Yorkshire cyclist Brian Robinson remains in hospital this morning. The 83-year-old who was the first Briton to complete the Tour de France and win a stage is recovering after he was involved in a collision with a car earlier this week.
Brian Robinson, a pioneer of British cycling - who helped bring the Tour de France to Yorkshire - is recovering well - after an accident while out riding his bike. The 83 year old was involved in a crash with a car yesterday. He' is suffering from broken bones, and even a punctured lung. Tonight, from his hospital bed, he has vowed to get back on his bike soon.
A special beer has been brewed to honour the Yorkshireman who made history in the Tour De France.
As the county prepares for Le Grand Depart in July, Brian Robinson is still remembered as the man who blazed a trail for British cycling. He became the first Brit to win a stage of Le Tour in 1958 and again in 1959.
To mark his victory the Little Valley Brewery near Hebden Bridge has produced an ale - the name of which is being kept under wraps until later today.
Brewers Sue Cooper and Vim Vanderspek, keen cyclists, said they wanted to pay tribute to Brian and capture his determinaton and spirit - in liquid form.
As for Brian, he says he's looking forward to going into a pub - and asking for his beer.
