    you wont likely find anything soon, official reports arent usually released until complete, and toxicology can take months

    I guess it just depends on where and how you ride. Here in Sedona, and where I used to live, just outside of Zion National Park in Southwestern Utah; many of the trails that we ride are narrow and technical, and often along the edge of cliffs with significant exposure. And most any place where you can gain some significant speed, the trail is likely to weave between large boulders, trees, and agave plants that are as pointy as needles on the tips, sturdy enough to go right through you, barbed along both edges of their stiff, blade-like "leaves", and have a blood-letting trough running the entire length, like some old-school sword blade. I fully accept the fact that I or someone I am riding with may die on any given ride.
    If more people rode more bikes, more places, more often, the world would be a more better place!

    Wow that really changes things! People are blaming the other riders in the group when really he was whacked out on drugs.

    All that in his system and mountain biking. Talk about speeding up the effects.
    Progress: Just because we have always done it that way is no reason to keep doing it that way.

    Maybe it's time for us in the cheap seats to hush up.
