The cycling community has paid tribute to Jason Lowndes, who was tragically killed by a car during a training ride near his home in Victoria, Australia, on Friday, December 22.

The popular 23-year-old was seen as a promising young Australian talent, and had signed to the British JLT-Condor team for 2018 from the Israel Cycling Academy.

In a tribute on its Facebook page, the Israel Cycling Academy said: "His constant broad smile, ever cheerful personality, and warm heart will be terribly missed forever by all of us."

"We wish to send our deep condolences to Jason's family and friends all over the world. Good bye, wonderful mate."

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.
