One of three cyclists who were pushed from their bikes in a series of similar incidents in Leicestershire, has been treated for a broken collar bone.
The man was the third to be approached as he rode his bike on Saturday 6th July on Stanton Lane in Croft.
An "old style silver BMW" crossed in front of the cyclist and braked sharply causing the cyclist to fall from his bike.
In two other similar incidents in Earl Shilton and Broughton Astley, victims described a "old, silver" car approaching them and the front seat passenger leaning out to push them over.

What is balance bike racing?
Balance bikes were first designed to introduce children to biking without stabilisers. The bikes, which have no pedels, are powered by children running. The framework is made of plastic and with no pedals or brakes, the bikes are free from greasy chains.
Children can start using balance bikes from the age of two.

The success of Great Britain's cyclists at recent Olympics has meant a huge increase in the number of people getting on their bikes. And councils across the Midlands would like even more people to take up the sport.
The councils say cycling is healthier, more environmentally friendly and cheaper than getting in the car or on the bus.
That may be so, but many people are also nervous about taking to the road on two wheels. Local authorities say they're planning to tackle that by improving cycle routes to make it safer for everyone. Rajiv Popat reports.

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family after this tragic incident.
It is important to say that we had not been made aware of any of potholes at this location prior to the incident, and the A631 is generally in a good condition. As soon as the police alerted us to it following the accident, we responded immediately.
However, this is an on-going police investigation and therefore it is not appropriate for me to comment any further at this time.
