News Flash. RIP Lauri Aus

Postby Rich » Sun 20 Jul 2003 13:44 GMT

In a really bad year for cycling already, I'm sorry to have to pass on the news that Estonian Lauri Aus (another former Vinoukorov team mate and friend) has been killed.

According to :

"Estonian pro Lauri Aus, member of the French Ag2R-Prévoyance team, was killed while riding to the Estonian MTB championships on Sunday. Aus was reportedly hit from behind by a drunk driver and died from his injuries in the ambulance."

Don't know what more I can really say, except sympathies and best wishes to his family, friends and colleagues.

.... currently living in a land full of drunk and generally incompetent drivers, I can only cross my fingers - and express my condolences to Lauri's family.
