Did you see...... (not a spoiler)african

Yesterday Jaja was climbing and almost hit a woman holding her baby. I could not belive it. Jaja could not either, he looked back over his shoulder in disbelief. Scary. Also did a 7 year old kid die when hit by a support vehicle??
Yeah... What happened with the child the other day???t-bill

I haven't been able to find anything about the accident where the child was hit by the pub caravan. Does anyone know what happened? They seem to have glossed over what seems to be a very serious event.

The young child died.

The race that was scheduled to start at 12:15pm yesterday, started at 12:16pm, after the riders stood for one minute of silence.

2 years in a row this has happened.

Sad, but I blame the parents.
Unfortunately, he didn't make it.Matno

I think he was pronounced DOA at the hospital. Very sad. It's a good lesson for parents to learn to teach their children to ALWAYS look both ways before crossing ANY street. His poor family. (I think I read that he was running from his mother to his grandmother whom he spotted on the other side, or maybe it was the other way around...)

Yep...some people are just clueless as she was so busy looking at the veicles ahead of Jalabert, while exposing her kid way out into the traffic. How these riders keep their composure while under such pressure is amazing, as I would have screamed at the woman!
