John Yates 3 Years ago  
During the Ivy 100 in 8 run today John Yates took a tumble in the bunch resulting in serious injuries. He was knocked out and remained so throughout treatment at the scene, within our group there was a Doctor who looked after John, I don't know what we would have done without his skills, an ambulance and helicopter were called with the helicopter taking John to the Southern General due to his head injuries.

No more information is available but I'm sure we all wish him well and our sympathies go out to his family at this time.

A very sad day R.I.P John. The time I have been in the club I have had the pleasure to ride with him and he was always the gentleman.
My thoughts go out to his Family.

As one of the Gales on the run today I am shocked and saddened by this dreadful news. My thoughts and condolences go out to his family. In the short time I have been a member of the club I have known John to be a perfect gentleman and he will be sadly missed.

Shocking news. I joined the run as far as Thornhill yesterday and, as ever, it was great to chat with John.

This is absolutely terrible. Since I started cycling a few years back I always had great craic with John on the bike. As others have said a really top man and thoughts are with his family.
