So sorry to hear the news this morning of the death of Eddie Polin, member of Island Wheelers. I know Eddie since I have been involved in Irish racing, a legend in the Mid-Ulster area, a man you can call old school…outspoken but with a smile, had long conversations with Eddie about my homeland races and old fashion tactics…will miss him when we return to races…In behalf of the Belgian Project, my sincere condolences to his family and all his friends in cycling.
