Richard Moore, a legendary journalist, award-winning author and founding member of The Cycling Podcast, has died. He was 49.

Moore was recently in Belgium over the weekend covering Gent-Wevelgem and passed away on Monday with his podcast colleagues confirming his death in a heartfelt social media post on Wednesday. Out of respect for his family, the details of his passing have not been made public.

Moore, born in 1973, had a successful racing career, which culminated in representing Scotland at the Commonwealth Games. However, he rose to fame as a legendary journalist. He wrote for nearly every English-speaking cycling publication on the circuit at one time or another and penned an array of must-read books. His great works include Slaying the Badger, Etape, the Dirtiest Race in History, Sky’s the Limit, and the Bolt Supremacy.

The outpouring of love for Moore has been immense across the cycling world and beyond. Below, we’ve put together a selection of remembrances from across social media.

All of us at CyclingTips send our deepest condolences to Richard’s friends, family, and loved ones.
