OBITUARY: RIP Aaron Sweetman

Following on from the tragic death of Daniel Thompson on March 6th, Aaron Sweetman, who was the captain of the Junior Australian team during the 1995 Tour of Great Britain and Poland, has died as a result of a tragic accident whilst on holiday. This was how his death was announced on the Findon Skid Kids page on Facebook:

“R.I.P. Aaron Sweetman (Sweetie) result of accident overseas. Aaron was Captain of the very successful 1995 Tour of Great Britain and Poland. He was held in high esteem by all members and was always available to ‘lend a hand’.

“Sweetie was also part of the team who made the TV show ‘Skid Kids and Cycle Speedway’. Always smiling, he will be sadly missed. Our deepest sympathy to his family. Once a Skid Kid always a Skid Kid.”

Aaron’s passing is the second in close succession that has rocked the Australian Cycle Speedway community, after Daniel Thompson was tragically killed whilst riding with his daughter last month in Murray Bridge.

RIP Aaron.
