Michael Goolaerts dies after heart attack in Paris-Roubaix
« on: April 08, 2018, 09:08:51 PM »


One of my favorite pro races to watch is the Paris-Roubaix. While I didnt have a chance to watch it live today, I did follow it on instagram and youtube. Great job by Peter Sagan to win. Such a brutal race on cobblestones. However, sadness overshadowed the win as pro Michael Goolaerts died of a heart attack. Pretty sad to have that happen, these guys are in amazing shape. He was only 23 years old as well.

That is sad, seems to be a lot of that going on in sports lately.  I think there was a basketball player that passed a few weeks ago to heart related issues too.

Sagan is pretty awesome though!
