RIP David Duffield

I think anyone who grew up watching cycling on Eurosport in the 90s will be saddened by the loss of David Duffield. One of the great voices of the sport.

Very sad news today here in the UK. Reading the tributes you get a sense of the real calibre of David Duffield. National record holder on the trike, renowned commentator and he even played a major part in bringing BMX bikes to the UK during the early 80s.
A couple of months ago we managed to get the original David Duffield fan club website and find a permanent home for it - it was a lot of fun reading up on David's commentary once more. The rest of the site is at We Love David Duffield - Bikesy for those interested in finding out what all the fuss is about. RIP David, you were a real gent.

That's a brilliant link, Pootler. Thanks for that. I could think of a few Duffieldisms of my own given a bit of time I'm sure.
