Sad Day :(

The multisport community lost one of her brightest stars today. 30 year old Belgian duathlete, Benny Vansteelant, a NINE time duathlon world champion, died from injuries that he sustained after being hit by a car while out on a training ride.

I only saw Benny in action once; the first time that I gave the Pro Triathlete gig a go-around when I was 25. He destroyed me, and the rest of the field, at PowerMan Tennessee back in 2001.

I am extremely saddened to learn of his passing. What a sad, sad day...
