The Danish woman racing cyclist Jette Fuglsang, 31, has died in an accident during a downhill ride while on vacation with her husband in France. Fuglsang died as she drove down a mountain with her husband and teammates in the French Alps near L’Alpe d’Huez, one of Tour de France stage finishing lines.

Auto camper
“Jette, her husband and the other riders as well as coaches and managers were on their way downhill when Jette drove directly into an auto camper that was heading uphill,” Fredericia Cycle ClubChairman Michael Guldborg told politiken.dk.

In the collision Fuglsang was thrown into a mountainside, was quickly attended to by a passing doctor and flown to a hospital in Grenoble by helicopter, but her life could not be saved.

Would have quit cycling
“Jette and her husband Rene, who was an A rider, had decided that this was to be their last season as competition riders. They had decided to stop racing and start a family,” says Guldborg.

Fuglsang was among the elite of Danish women cyclists, almost qualifying for the Beijing Olympics last year.

Fuglsang’s death is the second to hit Danish competition cyclists in France this year. Lars Werenberg, an A-rider for Odder CK, was killed when he crashed during his team’s training camp in Nice in February.
