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.

Indeed.
I am very sorry if you find my posts long and boring, I like to type and often go off on a tangent.

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.
