Bicyclist Die Fall Race

At least he died doing what he loved, though, no life should be cut as short as his.

The bicyclist, Robert Verhaaren, didn't die of a heart attack or dehydration in a race from Logan, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyo.

He crashed on a bridge and fell overboard, about 35 feet.

Robert was trying to avoid a pot hole, so he swerved — he was only 8 miles away from the finish line!

A spokesperson says it's the first fatality in the race's 30-year history, and the race itself is billed as the longest one-day bicycle race in the country sanctioned by USA Cycling.

Such a loss, we hope his family and friends can stay strong through this.
