Subject: Cycling star Jason MacIntyre dies after collision

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/16/08 at 3:04 am

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 record last year, died in hospital from his injuries.

He collided with a Highland Council van at about 1330 GMT on Tuesday.

Mr MacIntyre was a triple British and Scottish champion time trial cyclist. He lived in Fort William with his wife and eight-year-old twin girls.

He was born in Lochgilphead but had lived in Fort William since the age of 10.

Despite not starting cycling until he was 18, he progressed in the sport, winning the Tour of the North in Ireland at the age of 23.
