At the Ironman European Championship in Hamburg, the rider of a support motorcycle was killed in a serious accident. After about 2:25 hours, the motorcycle rider collided head-on with a participant on the bike course on Sunday. The head of operations of the police confirmed to the ARD "Sportschau" that the motorcyclist had died at the scene of the accident.
Hamburg - The participant was seriously injured, but according to the current state of affairs not in danger of life. The cameraman on the motorcycle was slightly injured and, like the participant, was taken to hospital. First, "bild.de" had reported on the consequences of the accident. It was not clear for the time being whether the race would be abandoned.
The accident happened on a straight stretch on a dike. For reasons still unknown, the collision occurred. A little later, there were absurd scenes when participants carried their bicycles over the dike past the accident site. Dpa
