Proper shocking. Awful news and just hard to believe. He always came across as knowledgeable but more to the point, while I never knew him, many people I know did and they all seemed to think very highly of him.
Surprisingly shocked and stunned by this sad news. I say that as it wasn’t expected but also made me realise how much influence he had over my 24 years of mtbing as there are snippets from all that time flooding back to me. a real loss, thoughts out to his nearest and dearest.
