Charlie Craig's passing

The domestic cycling scene has been left in shock after the death of Under-16 National Trophy Cyclocross Series winner Charlie Craig.

The 15-year-old from Derbyshire died in his sleep on Friday night, news that was broken by his dad Nick Craig, himself the reigning veteran National Trophy Cyclocross and National Cross-Country MTB Series champion and a former senior national champion.

“Yesterday, our world fell apart,” he said on Facebook. “Our beautiful lovely little boy Charlie went to sleep but never woke up. I don’t know what else to write just now, but he will be with his little angel niece.”

(Condalences to the family. Tragic death of a 15 year old - pray that no "vitamins" involved)
