I don't doubt your veracity, but a link is rather necessary on such an announcement.

(EDIT)... 2 things.  1.  Thinking about it, we have had two people under 25 die in the past day, and seems as a collective we have under-utilized the 'Death Under 45' thread, I am as guilty as anyone.  Need to re-boot that next chance we get.
2.  I call bullshit on the cyclist who died of a heart attack AFTER falling on rocks accident.  Makes WAY more sense to me he had a heart attack, causing an accident from which he fell on rocks.  Whatever.  He's fahkin dead alls I know.

Andy Rihs at 75.

 

Team owner of BMC the swiss mob.

 

Surprising its a genuine leukemia not drug related death (tho Swiss Clinic makes you wonder).

 

Also owned The Young Boys in Berne fitba club, butt of many a joke.

Quite. One young death from heart failure is unfortunate. Two looks like carelessness.

Once again thinking about doing it or not doing it:
