A 52-year-old man from Hove is still unconscious in intensive care this morning after being attacked by a cyclist.
The man was punched to the ground in what appears to have been a road rage row in Portland Road, Hove, late yesterday morning.
Sussex Police today issued descriptions of three cyclists that it believes were involved in the incident.
It is thought that the victim opened the door of his Jaguar car into the path of three people cycling eastbound either hitting one or forcing him to take avoiding action.
An argument appears to have followed during which one of the cyclists knocked out the 52-year-old with a punch.
He suffered a serious head injury and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.
He was later transferred to the Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre in Haywards Heath where his condition was described as serious but stable.
Sussex Police described the attacker as a white man, in his late thirties, 5ft 10in to 6ft tall, of slim build and with two or three days’ growth of stubble.
He was wearing green cargo trousers and had a scruffy appearance.
He is believed to have been with two other cyclists who were wearing day-to-day clothes, not sports cycling gear.
One of the cyclists was riding a distinctive luminous green bicycle.
A fourth cyclist was close behind, travelling in the same direction, but was not part of the group.
Witnesses to the incident and anyone who recognises the descriptions or who has information is asked to call 0845 6070999.
