Jason MacIntyre, a three-time British champion and Scottish record holder, was killed today (Jan 15, 2008) when he was hit by a vehicle, said to be a council vehicle which overtook him and then turned into his path. The 34-year old was airlifted from the scene but died on his way to hospital in Glasgow. Jason represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in 2002. He beat the Scottish 10-mile TT record held by Graeme Obree, with a time of 18 minutes, 47 seconds. He also won the British 25-mile title for the second time and was leading Tour de France star David Millar in the Olympic time trial title race until a puncture ended his challenge.

Jason was my team mate in 2003, the last time that I saw him before leaving Scotland. Awesome guy and will be sadly missed by many people.

There's a very good piece written by Ed Hood and Gregor Russell over here:

Thoughts obviously go out to his young family. A massive loss to the cycling world also...

Just heard this sad news.

He was a great guy, he'd talk to anyone, no matter how fast or slow they were.

A great loss.

A fund has been set up to help Jason's family. I didn't know he was a carer for his daughter. It's just too sad.
