Jeanne Nell - SA track cyclist dies
South African track cyclist Jeanne Nell has died after a crash while attempting to qualify for the Commonwealth Game in Glasgow, officials said on Wednesday.
Nell, a former national sprint, time trial and keirin champion, fell during a keirin race in Cape Town on Tuesday and suffered head injuries. He later died in hospital.
His coach Ricky Kulsen described Nell as “one of the best sprinters South Africa has ever had…a true champion lost to South African cycling.”
Nell represented South Africa at the UCI Track World Cup in Manchester last year. Nell’s death follows that of South Africa’s Olympic cyclist Burry Stander died after being knocked down by a car last year.
