Humberside Police have named the victim of Good Friday’s fatal road traffic collision on the A63 in East Yorkshire.
The 65-year-old cyclist is named as Christopher Auker from Selby, say Humberside Police.
Mr Auker was taking part in an organised time trial cycle race at the time, sadly died as a result of the incident that happened just before 1040hrs, approximately three-quarters of a mile east of South Cave, say the police.
They add that the collision involved the cyclist and a Landrover Freelander that was towing a white Sterling Eccles touring caravan.
At the time of the collision, police say that it is believed the Landrover and caravan were stationary in lane one of the A63 and the cyclist rode into the rear of the caravan.
Humberside police say that Mr Auker was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
The road was closed for some time to allow emergency services to manage the scene and examine it thoroughly, they add, saying it re-opened again shortly before 1600hrs.
Officer would still like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the cyclist or caravan immediately prior to the collision.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to log 218 of 29 March 2013.
