Nicolas Portal, Team INEOS Director, dies at 40

Wow…shocking news.

Yeah, I was stunned. At a loss.

Looks like cardiac problems were the reason he retired from racing 10 years ago…said he had arythmia.

He was noticeably a genuine, decent guy in TV interviews. I couldn’t have named any of the other directeurs sportif, so he must have stood out a bit. Real shame!
