Madison world champion Isaac Galvez was killed during an indoor race in Ghent, Belgium on Sunday.
The 31-year-old Spaniard hit a railing after colliding with Belgian Dimitri de Fauw in the Six Days of Ghent event and died on the way to hospital.

Galvez won gold with Joan Llaneras at this year's world championships in Bordeaux, having also won the title seven years earlier.

The final day of the Ghent event has been cancelled.

I hadn't thought of that, but you're right. It must be horrible for De Fauw as well.

This is all so sad.
