did anyone notice that lately the tragedies come at package in cycling when they come? :(
wouter-tondo-soler injuries, demoitie-Myngheer-Stig injuries and now tilford-scarponi-chad young? tragic...

Yes, it's like it happens on pairs. Wouter and Tondo dying days after each other (although Tondo wasn't directly due to cycling activity), Demoitié and Myngheer dying while on a race, Broeckx and Girdlestone seriously injured days apart and the two of them with a miraculous recovery and now Scarponi and Young.

RIP Chad Young, so young...
