    Awful news, very sad. Condolences to his family and friends ūüôĀ

    I loved his attempt and video of the West Highland Way.

    This is so sad. I met Rab a couple of times. He used to organise ‚Äúmates races‚ÄĚ at Cathkin Braes. Such a lovely guy and he was just an amazing rider. I was so pleased to see him winning again. And now this, utterly tragic.

    RIP and sincere condolences to all those that knew him better than me.

    This is really sad news, such a shock. I actually got chatting to Rab through Instagram a while back and he was more than helpful. Absolutely shocking.

    absolutely terrible news ‚Äď i am devastated and dont even know the guy ‚Äď but damn he put some effort into the world of biking

    a true legend id say ‚Äď achieved alot and went a little under the radar really ‚Äď really impressed with his latest comeback and videos on youtube

    a very sad day someone so incredibly fit and healthy is gone just like that ūüôĀ

    Horrible news.

    I didn’t realise his partner is/was Katie Archibald. She has said on Twitter that it was a cardiac arrest, both she and paramedics worked on him to no avail.

    Young athletes dying from heart problems is far too common. I really hope more research is being done into this.

    This is absolutely heartbreaking! A lovely bloke and a fantastic rider! My heart goes out to his family and friends ‚Äď he will leave a huge hole in the cycling community ‚Äď especially amongst the Glasgow, Borders and Tweed Valley riders ‚Ķ

    Can’t imagine what Katie must be going through.

    There’s quite a outpouring, from all angles. I imagine there’ll be some send off.

    Can’t imagine what Katie must be going through.

    I hadn’t made the Katie Archibald connection, just realised it after reading the piece on the Beeb. Can’t even get close to imagining.

    Incredibly sad, RIP.

    Very sad ūüôĀ RIP

    I can’t imagine what Katie Archibald is going through: must just be awful.

    Didn‚Äôt know Rab but have followed him since I first marshalled cyclo-X races at Plean in the early 2000s. He‚Äôs always been part of the scene ‚Äď and a genuinely nice bloke.

    Had the pleasure of meeting and trying to compete against him at a couple of events in recent years. Genuinely nice bloke, very talented. Shocked. Condolences to friends and family.
