THE widow of an athlete who was killed when he was hit by a truck while training for the Beijing Olympics took part in the last few miles of a memorial cycle ride in his name on Saturday.

The 35-mile ride was organised by Dooley’s Racing Team from Paisley, and Jason MacIntyre’s widow, Caroline.

She joined riders at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge and cycled with the group to where her husband was struck.
