I don't really know why, but somehow I feel it's more difficult to cope with a fatal race incident. It's sad of course to see such a young person die, but the way it looks like (although the autopsy is still to come) this probably could have happened any day, also in training, so for me personally I somehow see it pretty unrelated to the race itself.

Now that it did happen in the biggest classic there is though, let's hope it will lead to some changes in regards of steady medical observation, heart disease screenings and so on at least.

edit: Cyclingtips had a piece about heart problems in pro cycling a while ago

edit 2: ok, an annual heart test is mandatory already for WT and PCT riders. I didn't know
