This makes me very sad - R.I.P. German ISDE Team Withdraws From Event

Recommended Posts

Wow, that sucks. Do people die every year in that event?

I've never heard of another death, but it's a very long running event, I'm sure there have probably been others. I just can't get over how many death's there have been in our sport this year. Not good. :thumbsup:

No, they certainly don't die every year. And two riders died this year, as well as one accident killing two occupants of a car as well. Very sad news....

That sucks :thumbsup: A rider died last year in Brazil, but his cause of death was a heart attack while riding, not accident related like this tragedy.

The car accident reminds me of the great loss of Destry Abbott at the Baja 500 a few years back. A police car somehow wandered onto the track and he hit him doing about 90mph. R.I.P.

Must be a real bummer when that KX500 with a headless rider blows by you in the desert!

Danny Hammel died at the Baja 500 back in something like '94, or '95....anyways about 10 years ago...man time flies.
