Former MRC triathlete Hans Thamain passed away Thursday after crashing his bike in Hyannis a few days ago. The details are fuzzy. Nobody seems to know if he was hit by a car or run off the road, or if he had some medical episode. He was in a coma for a couple of days before passing.
Hans was amazing: he was 77 and was still racing Ironman triathlons and teaching at Bentley. In fact he qualified for Kona for the fifth time this year.
The MRC sends out condolences to his family and all who knew this remarkable and kind man. Details of services here.
