Team GB boss, Lee Aris also commented via social media, writing: “Hearing the tragic news this morning about Joe Guy. I’m struggling to find the words. Joe was an enthusiastic and talented cyclist.
“I’m seeing young photos on Facebook from his Cycle Speedway days where he improved with every outing. I remember him asking me for tips as he always wanted to better himself.
“His passion for cycling took him to the Wheelers where he excelled further. I would hear glowing evaluations from friends around the track, and inside I felt good knowing he was excelling at something he loved.”
