José "El Chaba" Jimenez is dead

On Saturday, Jimenez died in a psychatric ward in Madrid because of a heart attack / heart failure. He was just 32 years old.
Last year, he retired from pro-cycling and suffered under manic depressions. A few weeks ago, he announced his comeback and had in mind to win a stage at the TDF.
He will be burried in his hometown EL Barraco today.

That's sad. He was a great climber.
