It is with immense sadness that we record the sudden death of Derek Stewart. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, he passed away within three weeks of the unexpected prognosis.
Derek, a member of the Deeside Thistle, was 10 Mile National Champion in 2014 and 2015; 25 Mile Champion in 2011 and 2015. Last year he was awarded the Meritorious Trophy for his achievements.
Derek was admired and respected by all who met him. A modest but gregarious person, his life story will be a surprise to his many friends in the world of Veteran Time Trialling.
A full obituary will be published in The Veteran but meanwhile, click the following link for more details of this amazing man: Derek Stewart Obituary.

The last of the Association's Championships took place on a course near Alcester in Warwickshire on the 21 August.
It was promoted ostensibly by the National Committee but its success was down wholly to the work of the Midlands Group under the guiding hand of ex-president Alan Colburn.
Brian Sunter was a clear winner on a windy morning although the threatened rain did not materialise. Brian, a previous champion at 30 miles 100 miles and 50 miles (six times) was delighted to record a gold medal at this popular distance.
David Hargreaves from North Lancashire proved the trip was worthwhile with second, whilst local rider, Philip Brown, took the bronze.
Liz Powell, also a local, was a clear winner from the women with Alison Vessey, a medal winner in every Championship this year, gaining another silver medal. Sarah Soden, from Nottingham was third.
The team prize went to the Yorkshire trio of Brian Sunter, Blair Buss and Tony Stott.
In the accompanying tandem event, Murray Kirton played the part of stoker to Mick Ives to win by a small margin from the other pairing of Nikki Hunt and Brian Foran.
A large number of excellent photographs taken by Brian Hall may be seen on his Facebook page.
