Sad news has struck the world of Endurance as it mourns the passing of Clement Stoll. Well-known in the world of Endurance, the 27-year-old rider was preparing for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, scheduled for April 15th and 16th, when he fell victim of a serious accident at the Nogaro circuit.
Stoll had just recently joined the Ecole de la Performance Endurance team and was at the Circuit Paul Armagnac for a two-day test, in order to become familiar with the CBR 1000RR-R, the bike he would have raced with in the Superstock class, on the same crew as Alex Sarrabayrouse, Adrian Parassol, and Leo Meunier.
According to the local press, the Stoll fell violently on the asphalt on Wednesday afternoon and had a cardio-respiratory arrest. He was quickly assisted and resuscitated, then transported by helicopter to the Purpan hospital in Toulouse where he, unfortunately, did not make it, following injuries sustained in the accident.
