Thirty-one year old Isaac Galvez of Spain was killed in a crash at the Six Days of Ghent track race. The race was stopped and all remaining races cancelled for the event.
MSNBC reports that Galvez crashed against the Railing during the Madison event. Galvez was World Champion on the track and finished second to Robbie McEwen on Stage 4 of this year’s Tour de France into Saint-Quentin.
Our prayers go out to his family.
