Valley News is reporting that Evan Barr-Beare, a 33-year-old Rhode Island scientist, suffered a possible medical issue while leading his class at the 40th annual Concord Criterium bicycle race. Evan veered off course, crashed and did not respond to emergency medical assistance.
The article explains that Evan was having a race most cyclists dream of, launching a solo attack that put him almost a minute ahead of the chasing pack. Our sympathies go out to Evan’s family and friends. Godspeed, Evan.
