Injury in T.N. race
Last August I was in a race in Chattanooga Tennessee and the was apparently a rider that was hit at high speed by a motorcycle. We were descending of a small mountain on this very twisty road and I was unfortunately near the pack of the large peloton. I saw this guy on a Harley approaching us in the other lane and he flew past us. The saw someone that must have been dropped on the climb and was chasing hard to get back in, and crossed over the yellow line on the last sharp turn. Just a second after the motorcycle past me I heard a rather loud KAPOW. I didn't even try to look back but there were riders coming up from behind me a little latter looking like this
saying that someone had been hit by that motorcycle. On the way back to the finish a little while latter there were still some police cars a perhaps a fire rescue still at the location. I live 2 hours away from there and I never have heard another word spoken about it but I was just wondering if anyone here had some info. I am sure that it had to be serious because the racer was going about 45 and the motorcyle looked to be going about 55mph.
