British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
@mtbikeaddict: I live in Chamonix, the entire valley apart from a small nature reserve at the far end is free to hunt, yet there is not one single sign post anywhere to alert locals or tourists. Most dog owners that live here are afraid to walk in any woodland during hunting season for fear of being shot.. The irony here is that the local Mairie bans mountain biking for most of the summer to keep the walkers safe,, yet hunting is allowed valley wide without informing anyone that it is happening.. sooner or later there will be more fatalities.. and like the tragic event in morzine, it will be because it is not a french local killed that it will get media attention from the nation of the poor soul that gets killed..

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
@mattwragg: @mattwragg: Maybe do a little bit of digging into local news etc on just how frequently this happens around here... The rules re flags etc are regularly completely ignored by hunters. They literally just go wherever they please and shoot with wild abandon.. So far there have been 13 fatalities in france this year.. just happens that because this one is a brit that the UK news has jumped on it.. There was a lady sunbathing in her own garden killed because a hunter was shooting towards her property, missed his target, the bullet went through the hedge, killing her instantly, a few weeks back a grandfather shot his own grandson... I've lost count of the amount of domestic dogs that have been shot in the last two years by hunters local here that if you take a wander up to the hides when they have gone, leave a pile of empty beer bottles for anyone to see. Most of the people local are terrified of going into the woods during hunting season.. Have a look on the morzine and chamonix facebook pages to get an idea of how big a problem this is...

Burning Question: Should the DH Skinsuit Ban Be Lifted?
@heavyp: you're forgetting that if ALL the racers wear them that any advantage disappears and they're all on a level playing field again,, just not looking quite as dapper as before..

O'Neal's Magnetic Goggles and Greg Minnaar Signature DH Helmet - Eurobike 2017
@andnyleswillriot: sorry but i've lost normal goggles too in tomahawks,, its not just a magnet thing, i wasn't saying it doesn't happen, but it's not just tied to magnet goggles, .. I've been using them since launch and have no issues, the benefits outweigh the one possible concern for me,,agree to disagree yeh? its only a bloody goggle,,;)
