- Road.ccmember of Australiaâ€™s gold-medal winning team pursuit squad has been banned from driving for five months after pleading guilty to drink driving. Dale Parker, aged 18, was also given a $1,100 fine and ordered to pay court costs and levies after crashing his car into a lamp post in November, leaving a pedestrian with head injuries.
Police also said the Parker, who had been driving under a probationary license, had been doing burnouts at the time of the crash which took place in the Adelaide Hills, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Earlier this month, Parker received a 16-month ban from racing, half of it suspended, from Sport SA after he pleaded guilty to bringing cycling into disrepute.
