Jason MacIntyre

A fatal accident inquiry into the death of Scottish multi-time trial champion Jason MacIntyre has been scheduled for March 1.

MacIntyre died after colliding with a Highland Council truck two years ago - in January 2008 - while on a training ride on the A82 near the council's depot.

The truck's driver, Robert McTaggart, was subsequently fined £500 and banned from driving for six months after pleading guilty to careless driving at Fort William Sheriff Court.

MacIntyre's widow, Caroline, and his family have been pressing for a full investigation into the incident, and had separately been seeking £500,000 compensation from McTaggart and Highland Council for loss of earnings and support.

The inquiry is scheduled to take place over three days at Fort William from March 1, with a premilinary hearing set for February 5.

At the time of his death, MacIntyre was the national 25-mile trime trial champion and had been training to represent Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
