2003 Paris-Camembert: Lauri Aus (AG2R-Prevoyance)
2003 Four Days of Dunkirk, Stage 4, Boulogne-sur-mer: Lauri Aus (AG2R-Prevoyance),
It was six years ago today, on July 20, 2003, that popular pro cyclist Lauri Aus (AG2R) was killed while training in his native Estonia, struck from behind by a drunk driver. Aus wasn't on the AG2R Tour team that year but he did ride in support of fellow Estonian sprinter Jaan Kirsipuu in the 1997 and 2000 Tours. A moment of silence was held in Aus's memory at the start of Stage 15 of the 2003 Tour. Aus notably finished 5th in the 1992 Olympics road race behind gold medal winner, the late Fabio Casartelli, a Motorola teammate of Lance Armstrong. Armstrong finished that race in 14th place in the same time as Aus.
We haven't forgotten.
