Riding for Víctor Cabedo

Fans and cyclists turned out in their hundreds as the late Víctor Cabedo was remembered in today's Marcha Cicloturista Ciudad de Valencia.

More than 600 turned up to complete the 45 kilometres in downtown Valencia, close to Cabedo's hometown of Onda, Castellón. The riders paid their respects to his family and closest friends, reports El Mundo Deportivo, as well as observing a minute's silence. Fittingly, José Cabedo, his brother, was allowed to cross the line first.

Organizer Javier Castellar also took time out to speak of the importance of rider safety on the roads, as well as paying tribute to the former Seguros Bilbao, Orbea and Euskaltel rider.

"Thank you to Víctor for being who he was, the great cyclist he was", he stated. "We will not forget you".
