Sad news about Jason MacIntyre

A Scottish cycling champion has died after a collision with a van on the A82 in Fort William.

Jason MacIntyre, 34, who broke cycling legend Graham Obree's 10-mile time trial Scottish record last year, died in hospital from his injuries.

His last blog entry is pretty poignant:

Having made it through Christmas & now New Year, all be it over fed and over weight, I'm looking forward to January and a 2008 to see what it brings.

Sad news indeed.

That's awful

A friend of mine got clipped by a cab while riding last night, sending him into the curb and causing him to black out for a while. Scary. He's ok, fortunately. But it really makes you think... you've got all these plans, and all it takes is one stupid driver...

It makes you realize how quickly we can be taken away.

A fragile and delicate thing, this what we call 'life'.

What I'd likie to know is: Who was the stupid sombotch that declared it sacred?
