Tributes paid following death of cyclist

Tributes have been paid to a cyclist who died while competing in the Severn Bridge Road Race in Gloucestershire yesterday. Junior Heffernan was involved in a collision with a car during the race, which was immediately abandoned.

This is a tragedy which will profoundly sadden everyone associated with cycling in this country.

My thoughts are with Junior's family and with his friends.

– British Cycling president Brian Cookson
