A Bad Week for Retired Pro Triathletes
Then, Steve Larsen, the road/mountain/cross cycling icon who also made a big splash in the big race on the Big Island when he "dabbled" in the sport of triathlon, died suddenly and unexpectedly during a track workout. The initial reports pointed to a heart attack but the autopsy made a virus the primary suspect. Steve, I hope wherever you are there are miles and miles of great riding.
They say bad things happen in threes. I hope we don't hear about a shark attack on another former pro in the next few days.
