It seems more and more common. Last year a guy goes over the handle bars on an xc trail, and is now sueing the kalapore (sp) for 1.7 million bucks because he broke his kneck. Assuming this all goes through, the trails there will be shut down. And today, reading the paper, O cup Canada Day DH race at blue mountain (ontario) is cancelled this year because "twenty eight year old Chris Jansel of London, Ont. suffered nerve damage to his neck in a crash at last year's Ontario Cup races at blue mountain. he currently requires the use of a cane to walk" . So this guy is suing the organizers of the race, and Blue mountain as a co-defendant. It's obvious that theres risk involved, im sure these people deserve some compensation for their injuries, but what they ask for is unreasonable, and is ruining the sport.
