Officers trying to identify a cyclist who died after a collision on a dual carriageway near Dronfield have released an EVO-fit image of his face, a picture of the brand of bike he was riding and a picture of the helmet and shoes that he was wearing, in the hope that someone will know who he is.
The incident happened on the southbound carriageway of the A61 at about 3.20pm on Thursday, July 31.
It involved a Citroen C3 and a cyclist who was riding a black and yellow Carrera TDF bicycle.
The cyclist suffered serious head injuries and was taken by air ambulance to Northern General Hospital, in Sheffield, where he later died.
The man was white, 55-65-years-old, 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall with short, light brown hair. He had no tattoos but had a small scar to his abdomen. He was wearing black Lycra shorts and red cycling shoes.
He was wearing a white t-shirt which said ‘Barnsley Metrodome Triathlon 1990’ and there was a sticker on the back of his helmet that said ‘Friar Tuck Triathlon 2002’, the race number was 100. This suggests that he may have been active in taking part in triathlons at some point.
Anyone with information on the identity of the man should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 451 of July 31.
