According to the note in the newspaper (second link) he survive. I am surprised there were no more casualties! Imagine the flying bike landing on the windshield of a car!

You can hear the egos step in just in the sounds of the motor. The guy was leading a good pace, then that guy that crashed passed and the camera bike sped up to stay with the guy that crashed. It seems that he must have thought the lead rider wasn't going fast enough. It sucks that he crashed but that could have been way worse.

I'm too chicken to watch. I hate seeing accidents unfold, especially since I always envision myself in the riders shoes.

Not my business but you are WAY WRONG!! You NEVER EVER picture yourself in an accident! period. YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU THINK! Always think positive when you are out riding! Be alert at all times. You know the drill!

This is the curve where the accident happened:

lapera

I used to ride that road all the time when I live in Mexico. It was basically Mexico City's version of the "610 loop". We used to meet in a mall. Then ride from Mexico City to Cuernavaca. Have breakfast in Tres Marias, and come back.

Every single weekend, there were crashes like this. I, and some friends, crashed on that road. We were very lucky not to get killed nor killed anyone with our irresponsibility.

Hindsight, I can't believe we were that stupid.

I have the opposite philosophy. I get well acquainted with my mortality before every ride. I am fully aware of what can happen at the blink of an eye. While riding, I don't focus on these things, but instead always know that it could be me that goes down on any given day. I also remind myself of the only things that can save me if I get into ... No chopping the throttle or standing the bike up if I'm in a turn too hot. No target fixating on the thing I don't want to hit. I know that I could go down and ride accordingly, but I never ride as if I have accepted that I'm going down one day. Every ride I am vigilant to avoid it.

Good find ileono918!

Yeap, the curve is called "La Pera" (The Pear), it has always been a bad spot, lots of accidents trough the years and not just bikes, the curve is in a hill, so if you are going to Cuernavaca you are going downhill. Too bad I got into bikes when I was already in the US. Never got to ride the roads around Mexico City, they are very twisty, like Mullholland Drive in LA.

I worded my response wrong. I'm very visual when people talk to me, so if I see it actually unfolding on screen, then I'm envisioning what they maybe seeing/feeling... that's why I said, "being in their shoes." I've been in a few really bad wrecks and walked away with minor injuries, so I really don't do well watching it on TV, or on the interwebz. I've rendered help to a few I've actually witnessed in real-life, but it still sucks watching it knowing you can't help when it's on the screen.

Still not watching it. I trust the descriptions were plenty to get a good picture of how it went down.

^^^ Got it. It's a bad accident, interesting how the body of the guy looks so swollen in his leather suit, unless he is the chunky type, also his legs look very separated. :( scary none the less...
