It was a wise discretion not to show the photos that are also on that site of Anna with the body: was she riding with him, or was it just that close that she got there so early?
To be honest, I didn't know if I should have posted any of these photo's, but in the end I think people want to know what happened to Michele. As for the other photo's, I don't believe showing his body laying on the ground adds to the narrative that I wanted to present, nor did I think it was appropriate.
Personally I did not know Michele Scarponi, but I feel deep sorrow for his loss and I hope that his wife and children know that there's people around the world that feel the same way.
I don't know if Anna was riding with him, I would hope that wasn't the case as having this tragedy ingrained in her last memory of her husband is not something I would wish on anyone, on the other hand I hope that Michele got to say goodbye to her before he left... Either way, it's very tragic and I feel terrible for the whole family.
