Here are the words written and published by Cycling Magazine regarding the early death of the promising cyclist.
“His death took place just days before Italian cyclist Sonny Colbrelli suffered a cardiac emergency following the second stage of the Vuelta a Catalunya. The European champion collapsed after the race and was rushed to hospital, and is thankfully recovering.
According to many, Baekeland had a good future ahead of him in the racing world, racing for Dovy Keukens-FCC, where he finished second in the 2019 edition of Beselare-Zonnebeke.
Before he died, he told his teammate he was not feeling well and was going to rest at the hotel.
After arriving in his room, he suffered a heart attack and the doctors were unable to revive him.”
