Ouch! That's dirty pool. And what a lucky shot, as it were. What were the odds that the wire would actually hit him in the neck? Jesus, what a way to go.
Yeah, I was thinking about it though... at least the guy went out doing what he loved, and it looked like he was out front, so he was having fun up to the end.
It's Italy, don't they have the Mafia to take care of punishments that the weal Lefty Government is unwilling to do? As an off-roader my observation is that while wearing a plastic "roost" protector, the wire might be at waist height and still slide quickly up to the neck-level, where pressure released from the tension would take effect... At 60mph there wouldn't be any time to react. I've heard of some situations up in the Pacific NW where wire has been found on riding trails, and a guy was seriously hurt recently in the hills above here when somebody put a chain across one.
weal = weak (sheesh)
