That was one of the most vile accidents I have ever seen. I can generally watch an accident without being affected, but that made me feel sick.

RIP Dan.

Just to add, this is so wrong:

Luis Carrera, 5 years ago, same place similar ncident.
The crowd was already gone and none of these 3 riders really wanted to go out on podium. They could have declared a result and gave a fuck on the 'celebrations'

I think a muted podium 'celebration' was perfect. They know the risks. If it was me, I wouldn't want the party to stop on my account.

RIP Daniel Hegarty.

My issue wasn't the guys going onto the podium, it was the gormless celebs who really didn't get the gravity of the situation, and posed for a photo thinking about their twitter followers rather than the family of a young man who just died in a pretty graphic way.
