PETER Smith, a member of Cycling Time Trial?s national committee, died on Saturday after he was in collision with a car while course measuring on the A1 in North Nottinghamshire.

Smith, 54, was a member of the Holme Valley Wheelers, and was secretary of the CTT?s Yorkshire District as well as a member of the national committee.

Peter McGrath, chairman of the CTT, said: ?Peter was a great guy – one of those who had participated in the sport and was prepared to put something back into it.

?He was a super person, well liked by everyone who knew him, and was always prepared to help people out – which is exactly what he was doing when he was killed.

?He was a really nice man, and was participating in all the things we?re doing to try and modernise our sport. He will be very much missed.?

A book of condolence has been opened for Mr Smith at the club?s website, www.holmevalleywheelers.org.uk
