Another Rider Down
This has been a very bad spring/summer for riders in the northeast. I didn't know this kid, but I did ride with friends of his. He was riding ahead of his group, and they came around a bend and found him unconscious. We guess he came into the corner too hot and couldn't get thru it. A painful reminder to ride within your limits.
Michael Long, 20
