Don died in a recent race Saturday 27 May and will be missed by all riders. Don was an active member of the Papanui Club and raced in most races. Also he helped out with the Benchmark races. He was also very positive and helpful. He followed the Tour de France and rode in Italy and France. Don would climb any mountain.
