Major Rhys-Evans was wearing Army colours during the time trial
The jury has begun deliberations in the case of a 19-year-old motorist who hit and killed a cyclist competing in a race on the A1 in Cambridgeshire.
Major Gareth Rhys-Evans, 37, was killed when he was hit by Katie Hart's Ford Ka at Eaton Socon on 3 May 2009.
Ms Hart, of Little Paxton, Cambs, told Peterborough Crown Court she did not see Maj Rhys-Evans until she felt an impact and saw him in her mirror.
She has denied one count of causing death by dangerous driving.
The court heard Ms Hart had admitted causing death by careless driving, but prosecutor John Goodier told the jury it was the Crown's case her standard of driving fell into the category of dangerous driving.
He said Maj Rhys-Evans, of Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, was a member of the Icknield Cycling Club, based in Bedfordshire, and was taking part in the time trials on the A1 between Sandy in Bedfordshire and Buckden in Cambridgeshire.
He said Maj Rhys-Evans was wearing the colours of the armed forces as he cycled southbound on the A1.
