Elizabeth Kobeszka, 24, of Chicago was riding with a pack of cyclists west on Brimfield-Jubilee Road about 9:30 a.m., about three miles from the finish
line, when a competitor collided with her. The impact sent her into the eastbound lane, where she was struck by the truck, according to police reports.
I didn't know Beth. From the statements from some of her XxX teammates, she sounds like a great person and a great teammate.
