What's life... considering he was in good shape, dying at 40 of a heart attack is insane, probably some congenital malformation that was not discovered in time. May he rest in peace!
 
RIP! Poor guy should have stayed twice as long on this earth.

According to cyclingnews, he suffered from cardiac arrhythmia in the last years of his cycling career as a rider. Must have been a factor.

As you mentioned, it's nearly impossible for a young-ish guy in great shape to suffer from a heart attack.

No, it’s really not...being fit and being healthy are not the same thing always.

Just shocking news, always seemed such a passionate and funny guy, full of life. RIP.
 
What strikes me the most - looking at the pictures - is how young he looked. If someone had shown me a picture of this guy, and I didn't know who he was, telling me he was in his early 30es, I'd probably have believed them.
Then there's this weird feeling I get whenever I see pictures of someone who has died; like looking at an echo.

It is an eerie feeling indeed.
 
Admittedly didn't know Portal all that much, but reading about him he had strong and positive influence on Team INEOS and in general on professional cycling. Respect and my condolences.
