On Saturday's organized ride one of the riders in the lead group touched wheels and went down---organizers wound up taking him to the hospital for some broken bones.
We had our 4th of 6 TT's at the Speedway Wednesday night. We always put a LOT of emphasis on rider safety. We send riders out on the track in similar speed groups, require all passing to be on the right side, position event personnel all around the track etc. Unfortunately we had two separate events within minutes of each other. We had a rider run into the back of another rider after crossing the finish line. While EMS was attending to him a rider on the main track ran into the back of another rider taking them both down and sending one of them to the hospital......Come on folks!!!!! Pay attention!!
Just glad we have the EMS folks attending and assisting us at our events. You just cannot take those types of risks these days.
