well he died because of a cardiac arest and then he fell and smashed is head on the road,after that, the police went to investigate the team he was riding for (LA.MSS) and discover huge amounts of epo,anabolics,frozen blood of some athletes ,and other enhancing drugs...the team lost all the sponsors and the trainer Manuel Severino one of the best in the pro cycling today,is probably going to jail.
