Tragedy strikes in GP Felino

The GP Citta di Felino was the site of a tragedy on Tuesday after a Ukrainian rider died following an apparently innocuous crash.

Oleksandr Shapoval of the Promociclo Neri Sottoli team crashed during the race, but was conscious when he was taken to the hospital in Parma. His condition worsened after he was admitted, and race organisers received news later that the 19-year-old had died.
