I was absolutely gutted to hear this very sad news last night and as Mike was the heart and soul of Team Scooby I said that we would all go Round IOW for Macmillan this year as one team, Team Scooby.

Mike was really looking forward to it and was doing loads of work on his xs400 for this event.

My thoughts are with his young family.
