In just ten days, the memorial fund to benefit the family of Scottish rider Jason MacIntyre, who was killed after being struck by a transit van while out training last week has achieved its £20,000 target.

Donations came from as far as Australia, Canada, the US and Malaysia after the Braveheart Cycling Fund helped set up the appeal to benefit Mac Intyre's widow, Caroline, and twin daughters.

The 34-year-old rider, who was the national time trial champion and an Olympic hopeful, was remembered by hundreds of family and friends at his funeral last Wednesday, and will be further honoured with a memorial ride which was scheduled to take place Saturday.
