Also approaching it from the west the curve flatens out and effectively becomes an off camber turn half way through it. This is a deceptively lethal curve from either direction especially if you are really cooking. Here's some shots of for those not familiar with it. Be very careful on this very deceptive curve !!
Was there any sign of the accident? Which direction the rider was traveling?
