I just read this story and it saddens me. Let's be very careful out there, especially going down Brimley Hill in a tuck position. I had my scare there two years ago training on my own. It was a hot summer day and my rear tires did a little fish tail as I went down the bend near the bottom of the hill and scared the hell out of me. It made me more cautious going down the hill.
Take care everyone.
