How many more people have to die, before mountain biking is banned??? If he were on foot, it is very unlikely that he would have fallen.

Man dies in 150 metre bike plunge
A 31-year old man was killed when he lost his balance on his mountain bike and plunged 150 metres down a mountain in Zillertal in the Austrian Tirol.
The German tourist was taking a mountain bike tour enroute to Mayrhofen when he stopped to wait for a fellow biker.
But as he entered a left curve he lost his balance and fell backwards 150 metres down a steep mountain face.
The man was dead when rescue teams reached him.
