Thank you for that picture. I took a short hiatus from cycling, and in 2010, I started watching it again. The Mountain Bike Action magazine I bought in Japan was the Sea Otter 2010 edition. I really enjoyed watching the specialized duo tear up the scene.

I always point out that statistically its far more dangerous to be on the road with a bicycle.
Probably more likely to have minor to medium injury doing DH biking, but more likely to be killed on the road on a bicycle.
Two world champions in one shot. Beijing 2008.
They'll be missed, hope something good will come after these tragedies for the sake of safety of cyclists on the road.
