McDonald's executive dies in bike plunge

The managing director of McDonald's Switzerland has been killed in a
mountain bike accident in the Swiss Alps.

Martin Knoll, a 51 year-old Austrian, was touring in a group when he
lost his balance and plunged about 50 metres in the Engstlenalp area
near Innertkirchen in canton Bern, the company's website announced on
Sunday.

His body had to be recovered by helicopter after the accident, which
occurred on Friday.

The area of the accident is popular with mountain bikers but police
describe it as "challenging". On the exposed stretch where Knoll fell,
notices advise bikers to dismount.

Knoll had been with McDonald's since 1993 and headed the business in
Switzerland and Liechtenstein since 2003.

Virginia you can't use a male alias and think you've fooled anyone.

You staged these bike accidents because you are sick inside.

Please refrain from anything regarding Mountain Biking because you are
not a mountain biker.

Your power trip you're on has you being invasive to others, you are a
sick child, please stop being involved in MTBing.

Thanks for proving once again (as if more proof were needed!) that
mountain bikers are truly sick individuals. Luckily, mountain biking
is somewhat self-limiting, as evolution culls the less mentally fit....

That explains your continued existance, as being less mentally fit but not a
mountain biker, you manage to live on. It's a shame that you don't get out
and ride your bike more often.


What happened, did you lose your IP? I notice you are posting with that
lame-ass Google Groups. I suppose you spell your e-mail address, hotmale.
Sick *******.

you ingested nano-technology micro-transmitters that attach
themselves to your stomach lining. now we dont need all the manpower
to keep tabs on you anymore we just look at a computer screen to see
where you are
on the GPS grid within an eighth of an inch. at all times day and
night."
