In a statement released on Thursday morning, Dan's father Richard thanked the racing community for their support, and said the Tyco team has his “full backing” to “crack on”.
“Hello everyone, thank you for your support at this sad time,” the statement began.
“Dan lived for his racing and wild horse wouldn't of torn him away from it. I was happy for him, he was in his element and loving it.
“My thoughts are for Leanne and my other son Ryan and our whole family. Dan would want us to be strong and for the Tyco team to crack on, they have my full backing
