So sad.

Burry Stander, one of the best mountain bikers in the world and a two time Olympian, has passed away in a terribly tragic accident when he was hit by a taxi while practicing on his bike.

He was 25 years old.

The accident happened near his home in South Africa and an investigation is still ongoing.

Here's what one confidante said:

"I'm totally shattered. He was talented, ultra-competitive but at the same time extremely humble and a true gentleman."

Another Olympian friend tweeted:

Our hearts go out to Stander's family and friends. It is terrible to lose someone, but it is especially tragic to lose someone at such a young age and in the prime of their career.

RIP
