Sofie was a very talented athlete and friend of mine. Please be extra careful when out riding on the roads.
Sofie's smile and positive attitude will be greatly missed, I am glad I had the opportunity to work with such a great person.
Sophie will be missed by all who trained with her and saw her training regularly.
We feel all to vulnerable to the Big Rigs/Transports like the one that took her life, and Encourage all to take care on the roads.
