RESPECTED Spalding athlete Michael Barnsdale sadly passed away on Friday.

Barnsdale, who was chairman of Nene Valley Harries, died after losing a short battle with cancer.

He was set to compete in the veteran/55 category at the World Duathlon Championships in Spain next month, having placed third place at the Dambuster Duathlon at Rutland Water as recently as March.

Michael, who was a member of Spalding Triathlon Club, also completed a gruelling 300 mile cycle ride from Spalding to Paris in early June.
