Andrea Pinarello Dies in Giro del Friuli
Tragic news from the Giro del Friuli: Andrea Pinarello, son of Giovanni Pinarello, has passed away, apparently of a heart attack, shortly after completing the first stage of the Giro del Friuli from Tavagnacco to Staranzano.
Andrea Pinarello, 40, was responsible for marketing for Pinarello. A passionate cyclist, he was competing in the Friuli region in a UDACE stage race for amateurs.
He leaves behind his wife and two sons, brother Fausto and sister Carla, father Giovanni and mother Ida, all well known in the world of two wheels.
Our sincerest condolences go to the Pinarello family.
I will have fond memories of Andrea Pinarello riding his Pinarello through this La Pinarello video of Il Salto della Capra:
