(Not so) Happy Mondays... Flying Doc dies during practice

"Flying Doctor" John Hinds Killed in Irish Road Race Accident | RideApart

Didn't realize how reliant the racers were on these types of doctors due to the lack of airlift medical service. Major kudos for the docs that literally race to the crashed riders during any of the races.

RIP flying Doc!

I too did not even know they had such medics at those races, but does make sense, hopefully they do get the ball rollin and provide air support ASAP for these racers...
