Because we pay to see athletes push themselves boyond their limits…
I'm boycotting MTB and skiing until people stop getting paid to kill themselves. We are responsible for Steve and many others deaths and injuries.
We need to stop buying into the bullshit, and start investing in creative athletes…'creativity is the only way out' (to paraphrase MikeD).
He died doing a different sport(Motorcycle)
This so belongs in a different thread to debate….but I will say this.
At the Canadian nationals a few years ago,my wife and I shared a chairlift with him and spent a majority of the ride up talking about the joys of riding moto(woods riding)and various riding areas. My wife and I were only minutes ago talking about how he spoke passionately about it and as did we.
Dude was a hero both on and off the bike. Totally gutted. RIP
