R.I.P Frederiek Nolf
Mark Cavendish's win in stage 4 of the Tour of Qatar is overshadowed this morning by the sad news that 21 year old Belgian Frederiek Nolf of Team Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator died in his sleep last night at the Doha Ritz-Carlton in Qatar. Nolf who would have celebrated his 22nd birthday in 5 days time is believed to have died from a heart attack although an autopsy will take place to confirm if this is the case.
