Appalling error

I'll say it here in the hope that someone from the editorial team, preferably the author of the article, will respond.

The article on a sector of Paris-Roubaix being named in honour of John Degenkolb accuses a race moto of involvement in the death of Michael Goolaerts. He died after suffering a heart attack, and to attach a heinous slander against the race organisation to such a tragedy is quite appallingly bad journalism.

An explanation and apology are very much in order, Mr Ostanek.
