Just had a call from the Headmaster of the school I teach at. One of my tutees died yesterday - 14yr old lad - super kid.
Why relevant here - well on top of him being my tutee I also ran an mtb activity which he came to every week over the summer term. Over the term he went from a super cautious rider who would rather get off and walk to a confident young lad who would happily follow me on the local trails. He was riding with his family yesterday on holiday and raced off down a downhill section of the bridleway, didn't realise/appriciate/account for there being road at the bottom, overshot into the road and was hit by a transit and thrown 50 yards down the road.
Not my fault in the strictest sense but feeling pretty bad just at the minute
