The mother of the cyclist Chris Boardman has been killed in a cycling accident, her son has announced.

Carol Boardman, herself a former racing cyclist, died from injuries sustained in collision with a pick-up truck while out riding her bike in north Wales, the former Olympic cycling champion said.

“She leaves behind Keith, her partner for more than half a century, Lisa and I, and a large, loving family,” Boardman wrote in a tribute on Twitter.

“We cannot yet conceive of a world without her in it. We love you Carol, may the wind be ever at your back.”
