1970 National Senior Road Champion-Obit

I just found this out, news from my hometown (Rochester, NY). Michael Carnahan, the 1970 National Senior Road Champion passed away in early May. When I was racing in the mid 70's he helped us young guys out with training rides. Our club was the Genesee Valley Cycling Club, it was great to have a recent Champion as a member!

That year (1970) the races were held in Central Park in NYC.

(If this is the wrong sub-forum please move it, I couldn't find one for cycling history)
(I did post a link to his Obit, but I only have 3 posts (in 8 years!) so it wouldn't let it through. Just do a search for the obit for Michael L. Carnahan, May 8th. Democrat & Chronicle)

There is a "Wall of Remembrance" thread for this stuff, but it's clear that Mr Carnahan had a big impact on cycling in Rochester. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Wizard. It seemed that "Wall" thread was more for cyclists killed on the road. At any rate I just wanted this info to get out there on the busiest bicycle message boards I could find.
