Tributes paid to cyclist

Tributes have been paid to a Devon cyclist who died while competing in the Severn Bridge Road Race in Gloucestershire yesterday.

Junior Heffernan from Yelverton 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
