A Racer's Nightmare

The race was taking supposed to be a 34k road race in Northern Mexico. Instead just 15 minutes into it there were broken bodies an bikes strewn across the road, and this time it wasn't a cyclist who caused the death of one 34 year old Mexican cyclist.

The race in Matamoros, Mexico on Sunday points out a valuable lesson to everyone who races, whether in the U.S. or anywhere for that matter. Courses that are not closed to cars pose the threat of serious injury or death to everyone involved. Everyone needs to do their part and be attentive from the officials and corner marshalls, to the cyclists and spectators. Keep your head up and be aware of everything that is going on around you at all times.
