Sorry to hear this.

I tried out for that team to be their climber when I was at my best, but they said "Try again later. You're not there yet."

This thread reminds me how narrow the path is for skinny tired fast bicycles. It take very little for things to go very wrong. But that narrow path is so sweet. Be careful, all.

Good for you to ride for your friend today.

Wow.....really sorry to hear this, Jack. Sounds like you honored him well.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

My condolences.

Morbid but true; since my bike accident back in 05 that almost crippled me I always tell myself before I get on my bike that this maybe my last, so enjoy it.

JP it's truly sad to hear about your friend. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Update: though an article is posted on The Register, it is behind a pay-per-view firewall.

I did find this reference. It mentions the snapped bolt to stem face. Hold off reaching conclussions as the bike, stem, and all hardware are being investigated.

First-hand accounts from my buddy riding right next to him include the sound of 'something snapping' and then watching as Kurt's bars went in a crazy direction as the bike exited the turn straight into the building wall.
