Cyclist Daan Myngheer, aged 22, has passed away in hospital after he suffered a heart attack during the first stage of the Criterium International in Corsica.
He is the second cyclist from Belgium to die in as many days after cyclistAntoine Demoitie was hit by a motorbike during Gent-Wevelgem race.
Myngheer, who turned pro last year, was in an induced coma. In a statement, his team told that he lost his last race after fighting like a champ.
Though Easter weekend will not last for long the glory of the British cyclists will be out in full force.
Irrespective of the location and the model of bike from sleek to fast to the folding bikes, it will be a show of all.
Every Grand Tour in which Leopold Konig took part, the 27 years old professional cyclist who rides for the British team Sky has always been among the top ten riders to finish. Konig will take part in this year’s Giro d’Italia.
For the first time in his professional career, Konig will be participating in Giro d’Italia. He is hopeful of doing better in this race than he did in any other Grand Tour race in his professional career. Giro d’Italia will be held this year in the month of May.
British cycling is going to try and revive the triumph they had at the London Track World Cup as their best and leading riders will assemble at the place.
In the London 2012 track, Britain got 7 gold medals and the is well aware of the fact that something of that kind or even better is expected out of them this time in order to make the board have only the name of the country. The only disappointment the team faced last time was in the World Championships where they won only two gold medals.
Leading British rider Mark Cavendish has declared that he is contemplating his return right to velodrome at Rio Olympics 2016 with ominum since the Brazil road race might be incompatible for him.
The 29-year-old rider is lately prepping up for Ghent inaugural night. The 6 day mega championship is scheduled to be hosted at Belgium’s Kuipke veldrome. However, he has also insisted that his very return to track bears no connection with the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
However, as per the reports, the Manx cyclist is considering return to velodrome to take part in 6-discipline ominum.
