Australian cyclist Amy Gilett died in a tragical accident during the "Tour de Thuringia" in Germany. She was hit by a car. Five of here Australian teammates got seriously injured. Amy was only 29.

In 1996 Amy was member of the Australian Olympic team in Atlanta (rowing) before she changed her sports and started with cycling in 2000.

So sad... :down:

This is major news in Australia, of course. I understand the accident happened when an inexperienced 18-year-old driver lost control of her car and crossed over to the wrong side of the road.

Very tragic.

A sad day for the Australian Olympic movement in  general, and the cycling team in particular.
