30 October: Erik Mather Cup

Postby CommuRider » Wed Oct 26, 2011 3:40 pm

I suspect perchance a couple of BNA members knew Erik Mather. I knew Erik in a professional capacity and was saddened at his passing.

Found out that his club the Waratahs Vets CC is hosting the Colnago (Erik Mather) Cup in his memory this weekend at Eastern Creek Raceway. As I'm not a racer, by chance I came across it so posting it here

I knew Erik in the early 90s when he raced for UNSW with Derek Walker and others. A great guy.

There's a lengthy obit in today's SMH for anyone interested.
