Man this sucks. I just found out today that a close friend died last friday while riding in the city. I don't know the specific details but as soon as I get a newspaper article (it's been in the newspaper I just haven't picked one up yet) I'll let you know what exactly happened. What I do know is that he was hit by a car.
He was 21 yrs old and an up-and-comer. He was part of team GoodYear out of Athens and was winning races left and right. What gets at me the most is that he was always the one in the pack that made sure everyone followed the rules of the road. Always stopping at traffic lights (he made a game out of it by staying clipped in and just balancing till he got a green light), signaling with hands when needed, just a catious and concentious rider. A class act.
I don't even know what to say, I know I don't post often anymore (I do browse often) but I just felt like I should post something. This shouldn't of happened.
