Just found this, anyone know more about it (translation by google)

THE RACE IS PERMANENTLY DISCONTINUED

02/05/2010 - Pauline Warot

Around 6 am 20, a merchant ship sailing up the river, he was escorted by three safety boats on the front as is the procedure adopted in accordance with the highest authorities.

A racing boat is a boat collided with safety by two gendarmes of the Fluvial Brigade empowered to accomplish this mission.

Relief responded immediately, but unfortunately, the doctor could only note the death of one of two gendarmes and the second injury, whose days are not in danger.

Consternation reigns on the site, the race is stopped and will not resume today.

Chairman,
Antoine Bousquet

That sums it up pretty good Tony . The 2nd policeman was gravely injured as he may lose his leg. The race stopped at 6.20AM instead of 4PM. It's unclear if the race will take place next year.
