On behalf of the Irish Cycling Fraternity, the Belgian Project offers his sincere condolences for the loss of such young life to his family, teammates and friends. R.I.P Jarne
Here a tribute made by the team principals of his club Rudyco Cycling Team VZW from the Waasland Area near Brussels.
Our U17 rider Jarne Lemmens died in his sleep last night. Jarne was a happy, positive and inquisitive young guy who pursued his sporting dream in our club. He was very much liked at the club with teammates and supervisors, always willing to help and assist others and always ready. We cannot grasp it and we will miss Jarne very hard. The loss is indescribable. All our thoughts are with his parents, family and friends, who we express our heartfelt condolences and wish for a great deal of courage and strength.
