The day after the death of Nicolás Naranjo, it was known that his remains will be veiled on the field of Sportivo Rivadavia, the La Bebida club of which the cyclist was a fan since childhood.
The time of the wake is still unknown and will be confirmed by his relatives, who decided in Mendoza to donate his organs before the body is transferred to San Juan.
On Sunday, after the painful news was known, the cycling environment organized a caravan to accompany Nicolás from the Rivadavia Park to La Bebida, but there are still not too many details of how it will be or the starting time.
A tragic afternoon
On Saturday, Nicolás Naranjo, 31, from La Bebida, had attended the Ernesto Contreras velodrome in Mendoza. He had done it with his new formation Chimbas Te Quiero. Last May, the sprinter had left the Agrupación Vírgen de Fátima to join the ranks of Puertas de Cuyo.
The death of the director of the transport team Mario González left the continental team reeling, causing the Municipality of Chimbas to take over the training.
On the opposite straight of the velodrome in Mendoza, Nico crashed and suffered a severe blow. He was first transferred to the Lagomaggiore Hospital and, after it was found that he was brain dead, it was decided to take him to the Central Hospital, where everyone was asking for a miracle. However, the picture was irreversible and his heart stopped beating at 6:55 on Sunday.
