Memorial service for Wisconsin rider Monday

The family of Matt Wittig, the 20 year old Wisconsin cyclist that crashed in a race on May 8, announced Thursday that Matt has now passed on after being declared brain dead earlier in the week. His organs are being donated to as many people as possible in accordance with the wishes of the family. Members of the Wisconsin cycling community are encouraged to attend services in Mequon, Wisconsin, and to wear their bike jersey.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Lance Armstrong Foundation in Wittig's memory.
