Heavy traffic wasn't a problem in cyclist's death near St Neots

IN response to letter entitled "Tragic Reminder" (May 13). I was a fellow competitor in the 25-mile time trial in which Major Gareth Ryes Evans was tragically killed.
I can vouch that at that time of the morning there is very little traffic on the road. There are fluorescent signs on every junction, along with marshals, and riders at one minute intervals, so a cyclist riding on the A1 - a straight piece of road where a motorist paying attention can see for at least a mile in front of them - should be no danger to anyone.
Along with many other cyclists who spend a lot of time training or just cycling to work, I can honestly say that competing on the A1 at that time of the morning is no more dangerous than my commute to work every day on my bicycle.
In 20 years of time-trialling this is only the second accident of this nature that I am aware of.
