RIP Colin

















Yesterday was one of those days you wish will never happen. When news came through that Colin had been killed by a truck whilst out training in Tung Chung my immediate reaction was a sense of disbelievement- has this really happened? Not just to another anonymous person in the newspaper, but to a friend, to one of the most talented people I've known, not just on a bike, but in the boardroom or at home with his family. And so I, nay, we must come to terms with the fact that he will not be wearing kilts to anyone else's weddings, and he will not be leaving anyone else in his wake the moment the power in those long legs went to those poor pedals. Most of all, his wife and family must come to terms with the fact he never will get to ride with his son, and that yes, indeed, he has gone. It should never happen to anyone, least of all to someone like this. RIP Colin.
