Gonna sound really cold but I'm glad this style of racing still continues despite the accidents.

RIP young man.
It breaks my heart to hear this type of news but I agree with you 100%. Competitors go into events like this and the Dakar with their eyes open - they know the dangers - yet they still find the risk is worth it. In an increasingly sanitised world, it's thrilling to see these people really laying it all on the line.

Rest easy, Daley.
