I am not a follower, but certainly is a tragedy. If you knew him personally, condolences. How ironic that it happened while riding a bicycle.

Absolute shame. He appeared to be one really lovely feller.
And pouring over the news right now is the barbaric Manchester bomb. An Arena full of dear teenage girls.
What a disgusting Mad World WE have created.

Sad loss.
We seem to loose so many racers and ex racers to freak accidents outside their own sports whether it be MotoGP, road racing, rallying or whatever.
