Spalding Tri Club is mourning the sad loss of their longstanding member Mike Barnsdale. Mike sadly passed away on the 5th August 2011. Mike was an active member of the committee and lived for all things sport. In 2010, Mike was awarded 1st place in the Great British Duathlon Age Group rankings and had proudly represented Great Britain on a number of occasions at the World and European Duathlon Championships.
Amongst Mike's many achievements, Mike was one of the members of the 17 man team that cycled from Spalding to Paris in May 2011.
Mike was also a grass roots coach, many of the members of clubs that Mike has been involved in, have benefitted from his wealth of experience.
Mike will be sorely missed by us all and our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
