New Zealand cyclists are mourning the loss of fellow rider, Patrick Avery, 21, who died suddenly on Tuesday evening.

“We believe it may have been a seizure of heart attack which caused him to fall off the bike, but we are not sure.”

“Patrick comes from a well known cycling family in Rotorua, he was a fantastic young guy, very laid back and a very good cyclist.”
