ok. maybe there a bit of true in this...but still it´s just the start of the season and 6 podiums is already fine, but not for Peter ofc, he count only the wins..

Of course his results so far are more impressive than mine :p

 

But the way he gave away victory again today...it happens so damn often :( 

Honestly I'm starting to remember him more as someone who always gives away victories, "the eternal 2nd place finisher" than the guy who wins a lot of races :p

Nothing is normal today. Another crash with a motorbike! Antoine Demoitié (BEL) of Wanty-Groupe Gobert is today's victim in Gent-Wevelgem and according to his team he is in "extremely serious" condition in the intensive care unit. Another Belgian cyclist has even already said "RIP Antoine" on Twitter, suggesting he has died...so far his team hasn't confirmed that..

To be fair, it looks like it's not the fault of the motor rider. Eye witnesses apparently said Demoitié fell and then got hit by a motorbike who couldn't avoid him anymore.

Belgian media announced his death a while ago, but that was just based on the other cyclist (David Boucher). After that, his team wrote a tweet saying he is in "serious condition".

This source seems to be suggesting it has been confirmed by some family members....

Until it's officially announced, I'm hoping beyond hope that it won't be true.

 

 

 

The report linked in my last message has now been updated to say nothing has been confirmed. I'm still hoping.
