Andrew Starykowicz hit by van

Ironman & Ironman 70.3 champion and ├╝ber cyclist Andrew Starykowicz was hit and dragged under by a van Saturday morning during a training ride. He was hospitalized and his injuries evaluated, but has since been released. We have reached out to Andrew and his wife Jill but understandably no response yet. We will continue to keep you all updated as we learn more. Please keep Andrew in your thoughts and stay safe out there everyone.

UPDATE 0907PDT: We have confirmed from Tony Demakis at BASE Performance, one of Andrew's sponsors, that Andrew is home from the hospital and recovering. We are waiting to hear more from Andrew. But we are thankful for the positive update.

The story is also big news in Andrew's home region of Chicago, but the first official confirmation came from Andrew's Twitter account.
