Ah, kids. Whenever they even get a minor injury you’d think they’d been through World War Three with the amount they seem to exaggerate things. And it seems Mark McNally was no different.

In the eighth edition of our ‘Show us your scars’ series, the Madison-Gensis rider tells us about the time he convinced himself he had a piece of carbon fibre stuck in his right leg after a crash as a junior when his bike snapped. “You don’t have to let facts ruin a good story,” he says, which is probably the best advice you’ll receive all year.

The 25-year-old from Liverpool, who joined the British Madison team from Belgium based An-Post Chain Reaction at the start of 2015, also recounts the first time he ever came down in a bunch sprint. a pretty harrowing moment for most people who’ve ever raced bikes.
