Latest courses claim that Michael Goolaerts didn’t lost his life in the way we were all imaging. He apparently suffered a cardiac arrest right before the crash.


Latest details indicate that it was the sudden cardiac arrest which led him to crash at last week’s Paris-Roubaix event.


Sudden Heart Attack


After the doctors arrived at the scene to give Veranda’s Willems-Crelan cyclist, 23, the first help; they found him already unconscious and barely breathing. However, he was still alive and only minutes after the Belgian was being airlifted to the nearest hospital in Lille, he passed away.


“He suffered an attack while racing. His heart stopped, and that’s why he crashed,” Cambrai state prosecutor Remi Schwartz, said soon after the autopsy results.


“The autopsy confirms the previous hypothesis that death was due to a heart attack and not a crash,” Remy Schwartz added.


Currently, the authorities are investigating the rider’s sudden death aiming to unveil further details that lead to the tragic result.


“For now, we will carry out toxicology and pathological exams to determine the real cause of the attack.”
