A 23-year-old British cyclist has died in a crash with a car during a local race in western England.


Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

Junior Heffernan was fatally injured in a collision with a vehicle during the annual Severn Bridge Road Race near Olveston in Gloucestershire on Sunday.

The race was called off after Heffernan was hit on the third of 10 laps of a 6.6-mile circuit.

British Cycling president Brian Cookson says ''this is a tragedy which will profoundly sadden everyone associated with cycling in this country.''

Heffernan, who rode for the Herbalife-Leisure Lakes team, also competed in triathlon events.
