'Twas a great service with some lovely tributes from family and old cycling mates.

See you up the road, Justin.

Been away and just saw this now. Very sad news indeed. Sincerest condolences to all who knew him!

I never met UJ1, but like Wagger this has hit me hard. Something about loosing one of our small but tight community here!

Justin was a pretty modest and fairly private kind of guy, though he loved a chat and was quite sociable in his own way. He would probably be a bit embarrassed but secretly quite pleased with the kind words expressed on this thread. I know his family have checked it out and appreciate the comments.

Dalai's comment about the "small but tight community on here" is spot on. :|

Justin's son Simon and a few of Justin's friends went to Bright last week and rode the Alpine Classic as a bit of a memorial ride for UJ1.

A good day and a great tribute to Justin, especially from his son Simon and nephew Lincoln, who both rode the 200 under 10 hours in the poor conditions. Simon also wore a tribute kit and supplied us all with typical UJ1 cycling cap as a memento.

A great and emotional effort from Simon, who intends to go back next year and do it again. 8-)

I met Simon at the end of his ride. I pulled out at Tawonga and returned to Bright - not fit enough for the 200 this year, and the early conditions on Mt Buffalo didn't help. :roll: :D
