Jason MacIntyre

Scotland's Braveheart Cycling Fund has launched a memorial fund to help the family of Jason MacIntyre, the time trial champion who was tragically killed on Tuesday after a collision with a vehicle whilst out training.

MacIntyre was the full-time carer for one of his twin daughters, who suffers from a medical condition that meant she required constant attention. The fund aims to raise £20,000 to help the MacIntyre family care for their daughter for two years.

The Braveheart Cycling Fund had already allocated £2,000 to Jason MacIntyre to support his riding for the 2008 season. This money has been transferred to the memorial fund.
