Veranda’s Willems-Crelan rider Michael Goolaerts has died after suffering a cardiac arrest during the 2018 edition of Paris-Roubaix, the Independent reports.

Goolaerts crashed with just over 150 kilometers remaining in the race, with television footage showing that the Belgian had appeared to have crashed alone.

Race officials said that the 23-year-old had suffered a cardiac arrest, and received emergency treatment from medical staff at the scene. He was then transferred by helicopter to hospital in Lille, where he died Sunday evening surrounded by friends and family.

“It is with unimaginable sadness that we have to communicate the passing of our rider and friend Michael Goolaerts,” the team said in a statement.

“He passed away Sunday evening at 22:40 in Lille hospital in the presence of his family members and loved ones, who we keep in our thoughts. He died of a cardiac arrest, all medical assistance was to no avail.”
