In Feb 2017 Andy had a significant stroke. It was a cryptogenic one, with no particular reason behind it. You can say he was just unlucky. As you can imagine, it was a very traumatic and painful experience. He had to learn how to walk, and for a long time, Andy has lost the ability to do what he loves the most, ride his bike.
