Dirt Bikes Rock!
The recent unfortunate death of a female Boris Bike rider has raised serous safety concerns in London. The Coroner ruled the incident as “appalling accident” where the rider was knocked off the bike by a rushing lorry on street.
Miss Richard had a crash with a speeding lorry outside London’s Aldgate Eastern Tube station on last 5th of July as she was riding to her east London home.
Mary Hassell (the Coroner) has stated that she would be sending a written proposal to London Transport to initiate “innovative response” regarding problems of the busy narrow road junction which had the crash down of the 20-year-old French student last July. The French student was riding along one among the flagship commuter riding routes (as dubbed by London Mayor) albeit the very section does not provide any separate space for riding.
“The situation does not come with a simple answer from me”, noted Hassell. “We can change the culture here. I do appreciate that changes have already started yet I would wish to support the change so the riders can know instinctively the grave dangers posed by some manoeuvres here. There would be more riders- that’s what we wish for- & we need to come up with novel ways to ensure complete safety for them.”
According to reports, there were calls for the Boris riders to be supported with reflective clothing & increment of segregated riding lanes.
The Coroner described Richard as “cautious & prudent” yet added: I don’t feel she was riding recklessly despite that what Miss Richard did was highly dangerous.” The lorry driver Richard James remarked that he was driving at 10-12mph while the accident happened. James holds an experience of 22 years of driving. “My lorry was placed perfectly squarely across the lane”, stated James during his trial on court.

Alexander Vinokourov is a name in the cycling world which is equally known for doping as for his winning races. Sometimes these controversies create big impact on the mind of people that instead of being remembered for the achievements, these sportspersons are well known for their fading image. Most of the sports person are caught by this doping disease. Why there is such need for these celebrities who are recognized for their reputable work in the society. Not only Alexander, there are many other popular names who have been alleged for doping, even in the field of cycling. This is really disappointing news for the fans of cycling.
Famous cycler Froome is also popular for his doping habits. He doesn’t face the media because of this habit. Most of the times he avoids the meeting with press and his friends give the reason that he need to concentrate on the game more. Well, whatever the reason is, but it is for sure that the image of these players is getting spoiled among the sports lovers due to such bad habits. If they are concentrating more on the game then why people are encountering him with such questions? Nobody has the answer for it.
Even Alberto Contador has also been trapped in the case of doping. In the 2006 tour 13 riders were nominated in the doping case including him and finally they had to quit from their participation. It not only spoils the image of a rider, but also it spoils the reputation of the tour. Formation of Biological Passport in 2007 was a ray of hope to stop these things. In this, they were intended to make a profile by taking blood and urine of the cyclers. They said it will be helpful to know about any irregularities in the routine of riders.
