22 year-old Italian cyclist Andrea Curino has been killed, together with two others, in a car accident on Saturday evening in the province of Pavia. Curino was driving with his friends Alessandro Cassè and Edoardo Gaito when they lost control of the car and it plunged into a river. None of them survived. As a junior, Curino rode for Biringhello and Vigorplant, winning 18 races in his last season in that category. As an U23, he rode for Pierino Gavazzi's Resine Ragnoli team, followed by Bottoli Artoni, but abandoned cycling in June, 2003.
