    Amy Dombroski killed by truck while training

    I know she's more of a CX racer, but has hit the MTB scene more than a few times as well.

    Amy Dombroski was killed today when a truck hit her on a training ride.

    So sad, that's why I don't ride road. I do commute to work but my route sees minimal cars, I avoid them as much as I can.
    Ya, be safe on those roads. RIP

    It is funny, probably more people die everyday in their screaming metal coffins than bike riders in a year. Yet when a rider dies it really hits home. Amy was a great lady and a friend to everyone she met. She will be missed.
    R.I.P.
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!
