I just heard the news about one of my idols. Steve Larson died of an apparent heart attack today during a running workout. What a total shock.
Steve could do it all and that is why I admired him so much. Not many can say they competed in World Championships for road, mountain bike, xterra, track and cyclocross. He could run with the best of them in short events and also long distance events like Ironman. He also had his own businesses including a cycling shop and real estate. All this plus a great family man with 5 children.
Here is the story from VeloNews.
