Dame Sarah Storey 'in pieces' after women's hour record attempt

Britain's Dame Sarah Storey says she is "in pieces" after failing in her attempt to break the women's hour record at the London Olympic velodrome.

Storey rode 45.502km to set a British and Paralympian C5 best, but Dutchwoman Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel retains the record of 46.065km set in 2003.

The 11-time Paralympic champion, 37, was ahead of schedule early on but fell behind after 30 minutes and dropped further away to finish 563m adrift.
