I have not touched my bike since...

aw zam.  You must get back on.  Craig would be sad to think that you were not enjoying a ride.
You must live life.

    Just a small one. If people wish to post about the actual details , including road laws, safety aspects etc those posts are now here> http://velorooms.com/general-road-chat/bus-vs-cyclist-take-care-out-there/
    If possible it would be nice to keep this thread purely about our memories of craig rather than a disection of the actual events. This was suggested by several members of the community. Dim.

    Agree with the others, zammo. Get on that bike and go and do the hardest challenge you can find, in Craig's honor.

    Really liked Craig, I think he would like racing with me today. Pay tribute to him with his name and Aussie flag on my helmet.

    Happy racing mate, and drink couple of beers for us.

    Horrible news, not a lot more to say which hasn't already said. I assumed Craig was just overseas somewhere riding far from civilisation, if only he was.

    Gosh dim, thank you for the awesome pics.  :( :D :(

    Odd, Tony...after hearing about the sudden death of the other cyclist Robbie, I started to think about Craig again....he really touched us all didn't  he?

    I especially like the bottom pic with his medal...he looks so proud.

    If we could all live life like he did we would be fortunate....he is remembered with great love and respect.
    I do think he is racing....he's flying!

    Saw them photos earlier, well the racing and the China photographs. One comment from somewhere, not here or CN, (maybe Facebook or his cricket forum) stood out about how a sense of accomplishment in winning that medal.

    Nice words from Craigs dad on the CN Thread
    http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showpost.php?p=1066563&postcount=130

    Quote
    Hi all, this is Craig1985 dad Colin, my wife and I have only just found this website and are absolutely overwhelmed by how high in everyones esteem Craig was held. Your words of condolence and the value placed on his thoughts make us the proudest parents you can imagine in this time of turmoil. The court case against the man that killed him is likely to take another 18months to 2 years to conclude. After this has been settled we wish to scatter Craigs ashes somewhere along the Tour de France as his trip in 2005 to this event cemented forever Craigs love of your sport and his drive to be a better rider and combine sport with another one of his loves photography. Anybody who knows of place on the Tour of particular signifigance to Craig or any suggestions? Please feel free to contact us email phantomwalsh54@gmail.com.

     Colin and Sue Walsh

     :(

    I'm embarrassed to say I've only just seen this.  I rarely have much time to read forums these days so just assumed I was not seeing his posts. 

    Sorry Craig.  You were a good lad, taken far too early.

    It's been a year now.

    I doubt there's more news on the criminal side but does anybody know if there's any progress in the plans for taking his ashes to the Tour?
