Six years ago Jason MacIntyre was fatally injured in a collision with a lorry whilst out for an easy ride around his home town of Fort William.
Jason MacIntyre had won British Championships in a convincing manner and by doing so – and in the way he conducted himself on and off the bike – he had forced his way into the attentions of British Cycling.
With selection for the Beijing Olympics a real possibility things were looking very exciting for the talented highlander who prioritised his family above all else.
To mark the passing of the years and remember Jason’s amazing talent and unfulfilled potential, we’re revisiting our ‘Memories’ piece which marked the first anniversary of the tragedy.
Jason MacIntyre is missed as much today as he was then.
