One of our local riders was killed this morning commuting to work. While I don't have all the details, this is what I've heard and pieced together. I've heard he was riding to the right of the white line in the shoulder area and the vehicle was traveling at least 60 mph. The vehicle did not stop........ but was stopped soon after a witness reported seeing the incident.
It really kicks you in the gut when you know the person and have ridden with them. He was a very strong rider, rode on race teams, participated in events I've been involved with and was just a terrificly engaging guy. I recall on one ride where he complimented me for hanging on his wheel while others had fallen off after he had picked up the pace. He was 34. He leaves a wife who does not work and two beautiful kids under the age of 5.
Needless to say his teammates are devasted. They had all ridden just the night before on local training ride.
