The widow of Danish cyclist Chris Anker Sorensen, 37, is putting her feelings into words after Saturday’s tragedy.
Anker Sorensen, who quit in 2018, has worked as a pundit for Danish Channel 2 in recent years and has been in Belgium in connection with the cycling world championships. During a training trip on Saturday, he was hit by a car and succumbed to his injuries.
Michele Mostrup Sorensen, widow of Chris Anker Sorensen, stated in a press release to Danish media:
It was a completely incomprehensible shock to our whole family when my husband Chris Anker Sorensen died on Saturday in a meaningless traffic accident in Belgium.
“Sorrow and loss are indescribably great, and nothing can mitigate the great process we are going through now,” says Michel Mostrup Sorensen.
She is grateful for all the support she and her family have received since her death.
All the beautiful words about Chris that are flowing now from near and far, help us so much in a very difficult time.
Former professional cyclist Chris Anker Sorensen died in an accident: – Incomprehensible and incomprehensible.
His bike rides, stories, and beautiful, warm nature have touched and fascinated many. He obviously made a difference and burned himself into the consciousness of many people, she says in the letter, which he reproduced among others. Extra Bladet.
– He was a wonderful guy. It is incomprehensible and incomprehensible. I only have good thoughts and good things to say about Chris. It is very tragic. Dag Otto Lauritzen told VG that words are becoming redundant.
Chris Anker Sorensen also left behind two daughters, who also send their friendly thoughts to the person who has supported them in recent days.
– In this way, our two girls and I would like to thank the great love and warmth that we feel from all parts of the country at this time. Many have shared their stories and experiences with Chris. We are so happy.
– I absolutely cannot understand the idea that I will never kiss my husband again, that girls will never again be able to hug the best father in the world – because he was.
Dag Otto Lauritzen: – My life changed my life
– A wonderful father and a very lovable husband, this description is from Michelle Moestrup Sørensen. She now asks for peace to heal grief.
