    Really, really sad news, a tragic waste of a life with such a bright career. Thoughts go out to his friends and family.


    Terrible news… so sad.

    Not a hit and run. Taxi that he collided with stopped at the scene.
    That’s okay then?

    I never said anything to that effect, I was merely correcting the mis-information regarding this incident.


    Initial tv news reported a hit and run (and also, incorrectly that he was variously riding with his father, and wife). Today’s papers report the driver had stopped, has been charged with culpable homicide. “Die Beeld” carried a photo indicating that it was a typical left hook type incident. Also photos of his bike literally snapped in two.

    SA cyclists shocked as you can imagine. A number of memorial rides taking place – some doubling as protests about drivers in general. SA has a war ongoing between cyclists and motorists at the best of times – one which makes the UK seem very civilised!

    A tragic and uneccessary waste.
