More recently, Dave was the Premier/Elite League Competitions Manager for British Cycling. He was awarded the prestigious Wilkinson Sword for services to cycle speedway in 2009. Dave was also a founding member of the Bow and East London Cycle Speedway clubs, and was a prominent official for those clubs throughout his time in the sport.

Our condolences go to Dave's family, friends and everyone in cycle speedway who knew him. RIP Dave.
