Lmao high level of skill, anyone with a bike some extra cash can get a race license.

If it's the one I posted it happened over a year ago. Rider went over a barrier in a turn on a Wednesday night PP1 ride. Some homeless dude happened to be walking on that side of the barrier before sun rise on Thursday and came across the body and the bike.

His friends thought he may have left the ride and weren't sure where he went. The body and bike were not visible from the freeway.

You mean the same way anyone with a bike and some extra time could learn to safely operate at triple digits even on a public road? Who knew?

No, I'm talking about the guy who died on a SMR on RR south. Took out a fence and ended up in a field. The turn near the bridge I believe. No one seen it or noticed him missing.

It's a common occurrence on pp1 rides. They flip over guard rails on overpasses and no one notices. I can recall of at least 2 of those in the past few years. Plus the other fatal wrecks.
