Man, what a tragedy.

Being hit with this sort of unexpected bad news is always tough. Hope that family and friends can somehow live this through.

Cycling can be brutal sometimes

What a tragedy, his life was just about to start. Just this morning I read an article about him on Cyclingnews and now he's gone, hard to process. Rest in peace

Life is unfair to some people. This is as bad as it could get.

Oh no, what a tragedy Sad Sad Sad
I'll be back
Such tragedy, it's heartbreaking! Cycling is so frustrating, I love it, but it's such a hard sport, most riders earn so little and there's the very real chance of very serious injuries and even death.

Haven't been following the Tour of Poland and just saw this tragic news a few hours ago.

Bjorg Lambrecht RIP.
I've been away for a few days and came back to this terrible news. It's always a tragedy when a cyclist dies, but in this case it is even worse given his age. Both he and his family would have worked so hard and sacrificed so much for his whole young life only for it to be snatched away just as he realised his dream.

As others have said, he had already shown so much potential to be a top rider in the future. I had added him to my watch list for the Velogames fantasy autumn classics game given his early season form.

Hopefully it'll be a long time before we have to go through this kind of thing again.

Guaillaume Martin going to Cofidis


Had contract for Wanty for next season, but I guess Cofidis paid good money to get him out.
An interesting read on Jani Brajkovic admitting to suffer from eating disorders and that it’s not a rarity in the peloton:

Evenepoel extends his contract with Lefevere until 2023.
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.

We need to protect him from Brailsford
Richeze going to UAE to help Gaviria


Zakarin also confirmed at CCC. Exciting to see CCCs lineup next year.
Formolo joins UAE to focus on one day races.
Had hoped he stayed with Bora as his development was quite nice and his chances in hilly classics should have been pretty decent with basically only Schachmann as other option as the others focus mountains over hills, while Formolo despite decent GCs aimed to go for hilly classics such as LBL more.
Well if Martin and Costa leave UAE then he'll probably be the main leader for all the hilly classics and can build his calendar around those, along with helping Pogacar win either the Giro or Tour Pfft
Being one of my favorite riders, I was hoping I'd see him in a more fun at team, including staying at Bora. I hope he won't encounter the same difficulties there that some riders did this year.
Has anyone heard something about Pinot and whether or not he will ride the Vuelta?
