Crap that sucks. I found out about this literally the instant I saw him crossing the finish line in the tour of the alps his last full day alive. I didn't get to watch it live so it was recorded when I saw it.

A couple of pics from his funeral. The second one shows his brother, Marco, touching his brother's coffin.
