A guy I went to school with is a professional motorcyclist and was flung from his bike at 280km/h yesterday during a race in Sydney. His head’s basically mush. He’s on life support and his sister said they don’t expect him to come through. That is one awful way to go.

Yet police are urging people with info to call Crimestoppers, which doesn’t really add up if he just lost control of his bike on an organized, controlled course. Um. So.
