Peter was a long, long serving member of YCCA, and a life member of British Cycling. The life membership being awarded to Peter in recognition of delivering the world Cyclo cross championship, the last time it was staged here in the UK. That was back in 1992 in Roundhay Park, Leeds. The weekend was a huge success and Peter was rewarded for all his hard work and commitment, by witnessing GB junior Roger Hammond lifting the world title, in front of a huge crowd. Peter was also an enthusiastic competitor and was a part of the successful Calder Clarion squad, competing every week in Yorkshire events, while at the same time organising events in the Wakefield area. As today it was very much a family contribution, sons Richard and Paul starting their involvement,which continues to this day, and wife Joan standing on the finishing line in all weather carrying out the ‘clipboard scoring’.
Peter will be very sadly missed by all, and YCCA thank him for his valuable contribution for over half a century.
