A memorial service has been arranged for Ryan Cox at Madonna del Ghisallo this Sunday, August 5. Cox passed away yesterday when the main artery in his left leg burst. The 28 year-old South African rider had undergone an operation in France on July 4 to treat a blood flow problem in his leg.

A memorial ride will depart from ComoBike in Como (Via Grandi 15), at 8:00 led by compatriot and friend Brent Copeland, and finish on one of Cox's "favourite climbs," Ghisallo. Service will be held at 10:00.
