de Geyter's just been fired after less than a year.

To be fair, managing to ride all the way from Lombardia to Belgium, and only ride 100K would be quite an achievement.

I guess that's his phone auto-loading the ride to strava. having no smartphone I dont do that.
but if he was hit and it stopped, can't they track where his bike is now?

His phone lost signal as well. Isn't that weird? An accident wouldn't cause that..
Just hoping for the best :(

So it sounds like he was unconscious after an accident. What a relief that he has been found & is alive

Yes, a bit weird that the ride uploaded....all devices I know of require you to press at least a couple of buttons/commands to stop, save then upload a ride......anyway not so important I guess now, hope it's not too serious
