The crane operator on our jobsite just got killed this 4th July weekend riding his Harley. Booze & riding don't mix. Apparently he went off the road while riding the switchbacks with a few in him.

And I heard from a reliable source that a 49-year-old participant died due to heat-related issues while competing in the 12-hour race at Glen Helen. Haven't seen anything in the papers about it, though. At least this guy probably wasn't drinking alcohol.

I wouldn't doubt it. I've gotten off my bike after a few 3-hour races to find that I can't hardly walk or talk. Ironically, when you're in race mode you don't notice how spent you really are.

Generally I crawl under my truck and pass out for a few hours, really.



FALman, sorry for the loss. It's a damn shame that something as fun as steetbikes has to be so risky. Did your buddy go quick or did he end up spending hours in excrutiating pain, wadded-up at the base of a mountain? What was the nature of the mortal injury, head trauma? bleeding? Prayers to his family.

We're still trying to find out the specifics but apparently he died instantly. That much we know. We weren't tight but he was a good guy and a good worker.
