Brian Boxall

It is with great sadness to report that VC Baracchi Chairman Brian Boxall passed away on Christmas morning. 

Brian was the leadership figure of VC Baracchi and will be sadly missed. He encouraged everyone, from the young to the old, to enjoy cycling and cameraderie as he always did himself.  In his time he was for many years an active and successful club cyclist too (a 58-minute man when it was not commonplace).
