This is a tragedy. I can only hope that the funeral arrangements, consisting of blasting his coffin out of a cannon onto a ski jump track so that it travels 600 feet in the air into his burial plot through a promotional Red Bull™ banner, will provide some degree of solace to his family.

I believe it was Matt Groening who once said "Love is a snowmobile racing across the frozen tundra.  Suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath.  At night, the ice weasels come."

At least he died doing what he loved.

Being crushed by a snowmobile.

What's the difference between Caleb Moore and a moped?

A moped can make it to 30

The longer clip on ESPN shows them.

BronyMedic: I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure it's a generally accepted medical fact that the human chest and skull, and by-proxy, the brain does not well tolerate the impact of a 450lb Snowmobile traveling at 60+ miles per hour into the back of it, regardless of if you have a helmet on or not.

The fact he had a pericardial tamponade by the article doesn't help things. This was massive, catastrophic trauma looking at the video.

Tamponade is delicious.
It's like your girlfriend isn't pregnant in the summertime with a little sugar...

KFBR392: BronyMedic: Your Average Witty Fark User: Dale Earnhardt's wreck didn't look so bad either, and it obviously killed him. I don't see people screaming that Nascar should stop racing.

Dale Earnheardt's wreck resulted in massive changes in the areas of driver safety and restraint, and NASCAR policies.

The problem is, how do we make flipping a 450lb snow machine safer?

Make sure the rider has a gun? Seems to be the answer to all other problems

I know the Pitkin County coroner, and he says Moore is still alive. He talked to the nurses at St Mary's Hospital two hours ago (it's 1am here in Colorado), and they said Moore still has a pulse.

This one time  at the X Games Caleb Moore's snowmobile wouldn't start. The mechanic told Caleb his problem. "Oh, it looks like you've blown a seal." Caleb Moore , wiping his mouth nervously, replied, "Oh, no, that's just snow..."

Stolen from Deadspin DougExoter:  Caleb was in good spirits even until his last moments, when in a tribute to the competition he loved, he made the Games' logo with each of his eyes.
