Top bike racer dies at Clark - Maico Buncio
« on: May 19, 2011, 10:13:41 PM »
\"The Philippines\' fastest man on two wheels, record-breaking biking champion Maico Greg Buncio, died Sunday afternoon (May 15, 2011) after suffering serious injuries from a crash during the qualifier race the day before in the Clark Speedway Circuit. Traveling at high speed, his bike had slipped into loose gravel on the shoulder of the speedway. Buncio was thrown off 100 meters from his bike, crashing into an unfinished barrier on the speedway where a protruding steel bar punctured his body and damaged his kidney and liver. He was rushed to a nearby hospital before being brought to the UST Hospital early morning of Sunday, but the doctors\' efforts were in vain, and he passed away at 3:57pm.
