The organisers of the Carnival City Macsteel National Classic sadly report that a cyclists has passed away during the event held this morning. We can confirm that the deceased had passed away from an underlying medical condition and not from a motor vehicle accident, nor from a fellow cyclist taking part in the event.
There was a subsequent motor vehicle accident as a result of spectator value, whereby one motor vehicle drove into the stationary vehicle attending to the cyclist.
The organisers and the sponsors of the event would like to send their condolences to the deceased cyclist’s family. May he RIP.
