Sean Weide, a longtime fixture of pro cycling, died unexpectedly at 49 years of age. He was found dead at his home in Omaha Tuesday.

Weide was most recently a press officer and communications manager with the Axeon Hagens Berman cycling team, and previously worked with the BMC Racing Team, Team Type 1, Rock Racing, and Toyota-United.
