Police have appealed for help to establish the identity of a cyclist seriously hurt in a collision with a van north of Cupar.
The unknown man’s bicycle and the Volkswagen Crafter collided on the A913 between Cupar and the Parbroath crossroads just before 6.45am on Thursday.
He was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital, in Dundee.
It is thought the man, reckoned to be between 40 and 50 years old, may have links to the Perth area.
An image of the white mountain bike he was cycling has been released in the hope someone will recognise it.
The road was closed for several hours between the A92 and Balgarvie Road, Cupar, while investigations were conducted at the scene just east of the Parbroath crossroads.
Sergeant Nicola Young, of Fife Road Policing Unit, said: “The identity of the cyclist remains unknown and we are appealing to the public to help us identify him.
“He is a white man, around 6ft tall with brown, balding hair.
“He is possibly aged between 40 and 50 years old and is of slim to medium build.
“He may have links to the Perth area and we have released an image of the bicycle in the hope someone may recognise it.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police by phoning 101 and quoting incident number 462 of September 26.
