    Freak Accident leaves cyclist brain dead

    Man, this happened yesterday at my local velodrome. She rode a couple of times with my cycling group but she rode with the faster "guys".

    Such tragic loss.

    I don't know if I would this a "freak" accident though. Just a few weeks ago another Socal rider Chris Cono also crashed into a lightpole in a crit and died.

    The fact that your head hitting the ground or an immovable object... in the sport of cycling,.. is quite regular. And head injuries, with some resulting in death, from cycling is the highest of any sports. So I would not label this as freak accident though because the outcome was at least conceivable given the statictics on head injuries in cycling.

    Yeah, she rode with us a couple of weeks ago. I thought she was going to be a regular. I never got a chance to interact with her because she rode with the "A" group. Haven't been to the velodrome this year (trying to get back in shape).

    They had a memorial ride for Jackie this morning after Donuts; there must've been about 300+ riders on the Strand this morning.
