Most of you probably heard that there was a death at PBP. I've been able to find very few details.
Yesterday a posting on the San Diego Randonneurs list brought this:

Forwarded from Bill Beck (DC Randonneurs):
Some of you may have heard that an American rider at PBP was killed
Monday after an accident involving a truck. I am very sorry to report
the rider was our friend and fellow DC Randonneur, Thai Pham. The
details that have been published about the accident indicate that it
near *Médréac, en IIle-et-Vilaine, *on the route to Saint-Pern,
Tinteniac and Loudeac.
Thai rode his first brevet with us at the Flatbread 200K last
rode most recently in the Shenandoah 600K in June. Thai was a very
and polite man who clearly loved randonneuring. Even when he finished
the time limit in the Urbana 200K in March, he was still happy to
the ride under his own power and determined to earn his Super
award so that he could attend PBP. He will be truly missed by all of
got to ride with him or talk with him at the post-ride pizza parties.
pictures of Thai are at
Thai's sister and his family would like to get more information about
happened at the accident. So if any of you are reading this in France,
have additional direct information, please let me know.
I will send additional information as it becomes available. In the
please keep Thai's family in your thoughts and prayers.
