It's awful. Just another example of how fragile (and precious) the life of every person is.

RIP, Colin!

I thought I'd find a picture of him and Draco. This was taken at a CCI***, I don't remember which one, but they came in second place, I believe.

Wow, participates in one of the most dangerous sports in the world and dies in a car crash. Very sad news. RIP Colin.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Horrible News!!! :( RIP Colin.
