At age 40. You can't tell me that the era in which he rode had nothing to do with his early passing. http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/14567/Reports-1997-Gent-Wevelgem-winner-Gaumont-passes-away-in-France.aspx

I saw that Keith and just told my housemate that another EPOer died.

Irony; a drug created to enable really sick people to recovery is being used by and killing some of the healthiest.

Your blood isn't supposed to have the viscosity of STP oil treatment. Truly a shame.

Wasn't Gaumont one of the pot belge guys? If so, man, that was some serious sh_t.

The irony of him writing a book, "Prisoner of Doping", and dying so young...just crazy.

Gaumont was into everything. It's weird, I haven't seen a thing about yet on French media.

when I think of Gaumont, I think of him laying in the Forest of Arenberg with a broken femur. Not sure what year that was.

interesting that this news hasn't really made it to the main cycling websites
