I am reading conflicting stories on this: some say he was 39 years this says 42 years.

Some say it was the Calabogie's first fatal crash, read else where it wasn't the first.

RIP to the rider, heal up to the injured, thoughts out to the families of all involved.

I am looking forward to riding Calabogie in a couple weeks hopefully.

I've ridden Bogie tons of times. My avatar photo was taken there a few years back actually. Spectacular track with elevation changes, high speed sections and tons of challenging turns, some with decreasing radius'.

The issue with Bogie is the lack of run off. I've had to literally jump off the bike to avoid making it to the armco. Now I have no idea what the cause of the rider's death was so and by no means am I implying its the lack of run off.

Regarding the organizers, Pro6Cycle. I've ridden exclusively with them for the past 4 years right up until I stopped riding last season. They are, without a doubt the best run trackdays I've ever attended. Sandy, Joe and Sheena run a tight ship with rider safety as their utmost concern. This is a professional group of people.

Godspeed to the rider and my sincere condonlances to his family.

Tec, go easy brother. Look for my bro Adam on my HRC bike. He will be running in red and crushing 15's to 17's all day.

R.I.P.



It's actually more common than you would think, it just usually isn't what most would call "news worthy".
Agreed.

I was on track at Mosport a few years back with a vintage rider when he passed away. I distinctly remember ripping passed him and thinking to myself, cool vintage bike!

I remember it being pretty surreal because when I came around and saw the downed rider, he looked so anonymous with the dark visor. I remember pulling to the side of the track thinking holy crap, that could be any one of us thinking of myself and my group of friends there that day.

Go easy bros, the track is safer no doubt to push the envelope, but it doesn't negate the inherant dangers of riding motorcycles at very high rates of speed. Use your heads and remember to stay within YOUR limits.
