Race Tour du Hokkaido tragedy


Speeding Up
May 17, 2023
This is just so sad.

Very sadly passed away overnight.
Apparently from the videos I’ve seen, it is not unusual for racing cyclists here to encounter oncoming traffic. And like most accidents, this one seems to be the result of a series of cascading failures ending with the poor judgement of the cyclist trying to overtake on the right while entering a downhill blind curve at speed despite the race rule/warning to stay left on the road. I’m sure everyone involved will suffer PTSD for some time.
