Police Suspect Fork Failure in Cycling DeathBy Steve Casimiro on April 17th, 2012
58-year-old Gary Lanoue, of Attleboro, Massachusetts, was training for his 15th big-mileage charity ride when he crashed on the road in Rehoboth. He was found by an off-duty policeman and his Cervello Wolf SL fork was separated from the frame. Lanoue died a short time later at Rhode Island Hospital. 5,800 Cervello Wolf SL forks were recalled in 2008 after reports of breakage and injuries, and the cops are looking at “mechanical failure” as the cause of Lanoue’s crash. This is why you need to fill out those little warranty cards, peoples, so companies can get in touch if there’s potentially a problem. Via Wicked Local.
