The Colombian Cycling Federation announced this Monday the death of the young Daniel Pedraza Castillo, a talent trained in the cycling school of the municipality of Villapinzón, under the baton of his father Bernardo, former professional cyclist of the Manzana Postobón team.

Daniel, 17 years old and born in the land of the Astana cyclist Rodrigo Contreras, began to pave his way in the pedal world, standing out as a good rider and climber. Thanks to his family heritage, the drive and unconditional support of his family, the young runner appeared as one of the municipality’s projection talents to face top-level races at the national level.

Unfortunately his walk stopped on the morning of this January 25, around 10 in the morning, on the road that leads from Villapinzón to Chocontá. A public service bus maneuver took his life during his usual training routine.

“I was doing time trial work and unfortunately, those who witnessed the accident tell us that the driver reversed to pick up a passenger on the side of the road, and Daniel, who was very concentrated on the bike, had no reaction time” , says Carlos Hugo Vera Farfán, director of the municipality’s Sports Institute.

We wish peace at his grave and from our institution we send a heartfelt greeting of condolences to his family and friends.
