    My deepest heartfelt condolences to the family and those that knew her.
    I read this when it came out and I just couldn't do a response. it brings back too many memories of those of us out there that have lost fellow riders and family.
    Been sitting here (with the cast- so there is that) and even trying to make sense of it all. I love to ride. SHe did too.
    But i sat there and thought , there is alot I have to do on the "bucket list"
    and some of those are exactly what drives so many of us to" find the way", so to speak.
    I still wish and hope that she has found her way as well...

    GOD Speed Patrice Martinez, the road is yours always.

    Man, thats sad. It is a nightmare, it can just happen at any time to anyone. I didn't know Patrice, but my sympathies go to him and his family.

    That sucks. I was cruising back, dirt roads last summer when I came upon recent crash where a 16 y/o going too fast lost control and came across the road hitting a tree. Made me think about if I had been 1 minute faster.

    Sometimes there's just nothing you can do. Glad he died doing something he loved.

    As I absorb all the Dakar footage coming out of South America now I'm reminded of my friend Patrice. I didn't know him long but he burned bright.

    RIP, amigo.
