    The tragic death underscores the fact that SL must have at least one super specialty hospital similar to the ones in Singapore.

    Very Sad news, its high time that they stop Nuwaraeliya road race , which has taken couple of life's and the safety standards are very low

    Very sad indeed. Srilanka is not up to standard to hold this type of competitions to international levels providing the necessary safety for riders. The family should be properly compensated by the responsible organisations which held this competition .

    My Deepest Sympathise to Ananada's family. Sri Lanka lost a talented rider.
