Adam Blythe was disqualified from the Revolution Track Series longest lap race on Saturday after confusing a spectator’s whistle for the signal to start his sprint.
Although Blythe impressively hopped back behind the line, he was removed from the competition, which was won by Ed Clancy.

The longest lap race sees riders track standing until the start pistol (rather than whistle) signals the start of the racing proper.
Blythe was making his debut in Orica-GreenEdge colours after signing to the Australian squad for the 2015 season.
