Following the sad news of the death of Mick Harley on 4th May, 33/18 News has learned that Brian Herd, father of 1993 World Champion Tony Herd, has passed away following a battle with cancer. Here is how the Salisbury club reported the news on their Facebook page:

It is with heavy hearts that a long term Salisbury member has sadly passed away. Brian Herd was a coach to some of the best riders in the world, he took the Jets to many league and interclub victories. His coaching was one of a kind, it was relentless and full of passion leaving a lasting memory on the club.
He was also a commentator for many many years and a brilliant one at that.

We would like to express our condolences to his family and friends during this hard time.

He will be missed by the whole Salisbury Cycle Club and cycle community.
