The University of South Florida Cycling Team's co-founder, Joshua Kuck, was killed in a traffic accident on the weekend while taking part in the Hilly Hundred. Investigators believe the 22 year-old ran through a stop sign during the event, organised by the Tampa Bay Freewheelers cycling club, and was hit by a pickup truck.
"Josh was instrumental in the formation of the cycling team, and most likely the team would not exist at all if it were not for him," read a statement on the team's website, www.usfcycling.com. "In addition, Josh brought life to the team with his outgoing and positive attitude. The team deeply mourns his loss and it will take a great deal of time for the team to recover emotionally."
