Very sad to hear this. Kentucky kid always came across as a simple guy. R.I.P.

Apparently a German pro triathlete died a few hours before him in the same hospital. She was also knocked off her bike while out training.

I think Nicky was one of the few riders that didn't appear to have changed with success in the sport. He just seemed like he was a genuinely nice guy that just loved racing bikes.
