Awful news, tragedies are all around us but the more heartbreaking when they happen to someone so young with a lifetime of adventures ahead of them.
Seconded, terrible news.
Worked the World Cup when it came to Sheffield, Was lucky enough to have a brief chat with her, mid-rounds. Lovely person!! Sure she will be missed by many!
i can't believe she's gone, so sad.

The sport will miss such a truly awesome talent.
