Tragic Cycling Accident

Anthony Orsani, the 17 year old Italian national juniors time trial champion, was tragically killed in an accident when he was struck by a vehicle while out training today near the town of Vinci in the province of Florence.

Orsani was training with the GS Mastromarco di Lamporecchio (Pistoia) squad in preparation for his debut in an Under 23 race (he was turning 18 years old on December 2nd) at the Vuelta Tachira, Venezuela, in January, 2010.

Orsani was conscious when help arrived but died an hour later at the hospital in Empoli.

Our condolences to his family and friends.
