    Lauri Aus killed today



    So sad- I was reading on eurosport.com- they said that Lauri Aus, a professional cyclist from Estonia was killed today by a drunk driver.

    We lost another one today. R.I.P.

    No details yet other than this, but if anyone gets the AP report, can you post it here? It really hasn't hit the news yet.

    Actually "him" is the correct pronoun. Very accomplished cyclist from what I read and apparently killed by a drunk driver. A universal problem.

    So sad...
