Unfortunately the cyclist that sustained the injuries during the HOT-100 passed away due to the accident:

Our group received a letter on 8/29 from W. Ann Reynolds, President of UAB:

It is with great sadness that I announce that Dr. John Whitaker, Distinguished Professor and Chairman of UAB's Department of Neurology, passed away today from the injuries he sustained last weekend in a bicycling accident.

The attached forward email was from webmaster at www.mborobike.com about an acticle in the paper in Alabama yesterday.

Do you have any information on the details of his crash? I am from Birmingham and was also at the ride. It was such a beautiful day and a scenic route. How could something like this have occured?
