The organizing committee of the Granfondo Nove Colli expresses its deepest condolences for the death of Franco Del Ciondolo, who died today during the test due to an illness.
All the organizers and volunteers are close to Franco's family in these hours of great pain. «Mr. Franco Del Cecchini, taken ill, was rescued by one of the medical ambulances present on the route and subsequently by the helicopter rescue crew which departed promptly from the Cesena hospital but unfortunately any resuscitation attempt was in vain. Although each participant in the race must present a valid competitive fitness certificate, unfortunately these tragic fatalities can happen », the words of Dr. Vladimiro Giovannini, health manager of the race.
