 I had the chance to meet and race with Abel at the last Q-Cup in Camp Fortune. From those couple days riding it was clear he was a great rider and just an awesome guy to be around. When I heard the news earlier this week I couldn't believe it, it really hit home. I would really like to see some sort of memorial or commemoration at the Mont St. Anne Q-Cup next weekend. My best wishes go out to all the family and friends of Abel. Ride in Peace

 VOD... What I learned is that Abel lost control after dropping about 10 to 12 feet in Mont Ste-Anne and hit a tree. This is very sad. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. RIP Abel.

 Translated version of the link :- The victim was among a group of four mountain bikers when the accident occurred, 15h worm. The quartet was then in his fifth run of the day, "says Gregory Gomez del Prado of the Sûreté du Québec. The poor man has died after trying to jump a cliff about fifteen feet. Unfortunately, he missed his landing and crashed into a tree violently. He was wearing a helmet, but had no other covering, "said the policeman. According to him, Mr. Chouinard was an experienced cyclist. His death was confirmed at the hospital.
