British junior rider Joe Guy was struck and killed by a van while on a training ride with a friend on Wednesday. The junior competitor was targeting the national championships after recording a sub-22 minute ride in a ten mile time trial two weeks ago, a performance which highlighted his potential.
Police are investigating the circumstances of the collision, which occurred at the junction of Straight Mile and Vicarage Road at around 9.50 am on Wednesday. Guy was training with a fellow Wolverhampton Wheelers rider at the time.
An air ambulance tended to him at the scene of the collision but was sadly unable to save him.
Wolverhampton Wheelers chairman John Ireson paid tribute to Joe, describing him as a “lovely lad and a general all-round good person who will be sorely missed”.
