According to news sources in South Africa Carla Swart, national collegiate champion, and neo pro on HTC women’s team was hit and killed by a truck while out on a training ride. She was a member of the Lees-McCrae College cycling team located in Banner Elk, North Carolina, and from all accounts, was a pretty wonderful person. She also competed in the recent 2010 Commonwealth Games for South Africa. Our thoughts go out to her family, loved ones, teammates, and anyone else who knew her.
