The Russian invasion in Ukraine has claimed the life of one of the country’s national cycling coaches, who was also the father of the rider who won the men’s National Road Race Championships in 2019.

Alexander Kulyk was killed on Tuesday in Kyiv during a mission to help evacuate people from the capital city.

His son, 32-year-old Andriy Kulyk, was Ukrainian champion less than three years ago, and finished third in last year’s National Championships.  Cycling Weekly
