I don't think so. Such terrible just news travel faster and wider through the internet.
Always painful to see someone being robbed of his life in such a way.

Awful news :(
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Sorry, even if it wasn't the case, the picture is valid for all riders, any rider on the roads.

DEP Victor. May we forever remember happier times, and all thoughts be with his family, with his friends and with those that knew him.

I do perceive cases such as this as happening more often at the moment. Or rather, the outcomes are being worse. We had a few high profile escapes from some horrific crashes, such as Jonny Bellis and Pedro Horrillo, and some whose lives will never be the same but at least survived, such as Marina Romoli. However, since Carla Swart's death in January last year, it feels like we've had several deaths, and any is too many.

Siempre con nosotros.

This is the kind of news no one wants to hear - it's too much to handle especially because he was so young and had a bright future ahead of him :(

A shame. He was a promising rider going through a bad year, and suddenly that doesn't matter at all.
