I just did not want the topic to sink ... ;) nothing specific behind the period ...

I think nobody else mentioned it (please correct me if I'm wrong), but at the start of the giro Vino mentioned that they'll still honor his contract and pay the rest of his salary to his family.

Well, it's a neat coincidence.
40 days or six weeks... depends on praxis.

I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Incredibly sad. A vehicle is a potentially lethal weapon and such complacency is far too common these days. Texting while driving, watching videos etc. Really terrible.

Car driving seems to be, how to get away with things while I am driving. As if car driving did not have enough distractions already. Innocent people suffer the consequences and you have to wonder when sentencing for such incidents will become tougher. It seems that if a bike rider is involved somehow the bike rider has contributed by just being on a bike and on the road. It's ridiculous.

Sad epilogue to this story
reported in the Corriere this morning

http://www.corriere.it/cronache/18_febbraio_13/ancona-morto-un-tumore-l-uomo-che-investi-ciclista-scarponi-59f6c782-109d-11e8-ae74-6fc70a32f18b.shtml

The man who hit the cyclist Scarponi has died from a tumor.
...
Giacconi, 58 years old, today will be buried in the cemetery of Filottrano,
the town in the province of Ancona, a few meters from the tomb of Scarponi.

A tumor from depression?

58 year old is still a very young age to suddenly die in 2018.

My Italian is based almost entirely on cognates with Spanish, but I don't read it as suggesting that.

But depression would surely affect one's willingness to go through the very draining treatments that cancers require, and to the extent that resolve is considered a key to combating illness, it would undermine that.

All cloud, no silver lining.

Old man no one (here) has any relations to dies of cancer (shocker). Bad for him and those near him, but really, who cares? I'd be forever sad if I were to be affected by tragedies of that significance and that proximity to me. How many are killed or raped globally for every minute?

In the newspaper it says after the incident he had no power to fight the illness anymore. As we're all familiar with the tragic situation (this man was a friend of the Scarponi family) of course it's normal to feel a little sad when reading this.

the shortened version on the GAzzetta site says that the disease (probably cancer) was not responsive to therapy.He discovered the disease few months ago (discovered too late I assume)
It's completely unrelated to Scarponi

It's only an additional sad story piling up on the scarponi's story :(

What a tactless useless comment.
As you don't care, than nobody here has to care... very strong logic.
