Alessio Galletti, 1968-2005
Galletti died today in Spain while racing at the one-day Subida al Naranco. Apparently, Galletti continued to ride, despite shortness of breath, and medical personnel on the scene believed he suffered a heart attack.
Galletti's biggest career victory was probably his stage win in the 2001 Tour Down Under.
