Speaking after today's sentencing, Mr Richardson spoke of his struggle to put his life back together since the crash.
"Mentally, it's put me off, but I can overcome that. I'd be back on the road tomorrow if I could," he said.
"I physically haven't got the strength to hold myself up and actually ride a road bike.
"More than anything, I'm struggling because of how much it's affected my family."
