BBC News:Cyclist dies in RideLondon Leith Hill ascent

A man has died while taking part in the RideLondon cycle festival.

Organisers said a 55-year-old collapsed on the lower part of the ascent of Leith Hill - Surrey's highest point - on Sunday, during the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.

The "mass participation" event follows the route from London to Surrey made famous in the London 2012 Olympics.

The man received immediate medical attention but died at the scene. The cause of his death is not yet known.

None of the emergency services was able to confirm a report that he died from a suspected heart attack.

BBC journalist Douglas Marshall, 42, was taking part in the ride and was just behind where it happened.

He said Leith Hill was the hardest part of the route.

"We were stopped on the hill and everyone had to move over for an ambulance car to get past," he said.

"Some cyclists had been helping him and people were pretty frantic. As we went past, I saw the man on the floor having CPR.

"Someone said they'd been doing it for 15 minutes at that point. This was before the air ambulance had arrived.

"People were talking about it on the ride and somebody said they diverted the route around Leith Hill afterwards. It's very sad to hear they couldn't save him."

A spokeswoman for Surrey Air Ambulance said emergency teams received the alert at about 11:00 BST and a doctor and paramedic tried to help the man. Surrey Police said they also attended the incident near Dorking.

South East Coast ambulance service also sent paramedics, but a spokesman said despite their best efforts - and the efforts of people at the scene before crews arrived - the man "sadly died".

Organisers said the RideLondon welfare team were helping the rider's family and no more information would be released without the family's consent.

They have not yet commented to the BBC on the difficulty of the steep Box Hill and Leith Hill climbs.

More than 25,000 cyclists - including club cyclists, celebrities and amateur riders - took part in the amateur sportive.

The event saw riders go from the Olympic Park in east London, through Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher before finishing on the Mall.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson hailed it as "the greatest mass-participation cycling event in the world".
