    Hi all,

    Don't know if you will have heard yet, but Richard Stannard was hit by a reckless driver over the weekend at about 50mph, he has a shattered wrist and cuts and bruises, and will probably not race again this year.

    Thought anyone that was going to the Mazda tri to see him should know.

    Also brings it back home that cycling on the open road is dangerous, so ensure you always wear your helmet !!

    Heal well & quickly Richard....nearly had a head on this morning..6.30am (who is in such a rush at that time?), was approaching a roundabout to take third exit so was positioning myself to the right of the lane when the dipstick right in front of me heading my way overtaking another oncoming car just off the roundabout, caused me to have to swerve left to avoid..cheers mate. No damage tho' apart from the shakes when I got to work.

    Heard this morning that the person who hit Richard tried to get away but was caught.
