It’s been a day of mourning for the cycling community after yesterday’s tragic news of Jonathan Cantwell’s passing. There’s been a collective outpouring of grief from friends, fellow racers, members of the media, and colleagues alike, with many taking to social media to pay tribute to a loveable larrikin and fearsome competitor.
In the wake of Cantwell’s death, a GoFundMe account has been created to help support the 36-year-old’s family. At the time of writing that fund has raised more than $6,000 in just a few hours.
