I heard one of the ACTVets came off this morning, not sure where though. Probable fractured ribs, taken away in an ambulance.

I passed that one, but was on the western side of the bridge going north so i couldn't see much. Ambulance and police were both there and i expect the bodies were in the back already. it was between the regatta point exit and the bridge.

Update : wasn't the ACTVets rider, that happened elsewhere.
