Tjitte Bootsma - obituary
I.S.U.K today learnt of the untimely passing of Dutch Ice Speedway rider, Tjitte Bootsma, who had been suffering from a long-term illness.
'Tibo' as he was affectionately known, started racing on the Ice in 1985 and continued racing into the early 2000's.
He was perhaps better known for the design and development of lightened ice speedway bike frames which, amongst many others, have ridden Nikolay Krasnikov to each and every of his World Championship crowns.
TIBO frames remain extremely popular now, and , I am sure, will continue to keep Tjitte's legacy going from strength to strength.
Tjitte was just 56 years old. RIP.

lee richardson - 25/4/1979 – 13/5/2012
I.S.U.K would like to express it's most sincere heartfelt condolences to the family and many friends of Team GB Speedway rider, Lee Richardson. As many of you will no doubt already know, Lee tragically died on 13th May, following a crash during a Polish League meeting in Wroclaw.
Lee leaves behind a wife and three young sons.
Lee most recently rode for the Lakeside Hammers in the British Elite League, Rzeszow in the Polish Ekstraliga and Vargana in the Swedish Elitserien.
He was crowned the World Under-21 Champion in 1999.
He was a strong-willed and genuine individual who always spoke out for the good of our wonderful Sport.
