Am I correct that you are turning into the dirt parking area? If so I'd go with a 2 way plan. If the breaks happen merge into traffic and turn left into whatever part of the lot is available. That...

I consider a spare tube essential. 5-10% of flats can result to damage to the valve. No spare tube and you are walking.

Even more essential for a newbie or someone out of practice as the wrong...

If I read his post correctly he really does not have the second choice and the first does not sound that good either.

Bolding mine.

Which is an excellent reason to assume that the guy was either stunned or wearing clips and straps. An ongoing violent thrashing will release clipless. I've seen newbies go down...

Since the video showed a clipless setup I'd say the odds favor that being what the rider was using.

It also mentioned arm and facial injuries. It may well be he was not clipping out because he...

I watched the short clip at least 4 times to be sure my initial impression was correct. The guy riding the sidewalk is pretty much going at the speed of traffic in the road.

If they left a number call back, explain and ask to be removed from their list. Oh and mention that if you keep receiving calls you will have your lawyer pursue action for harassment.

Nah,

I'd say the journalism is correct. The thing is most rules are worded to give some leeway. Any rider who has a mechanical problem in the middle of the race will work back through the cars....

About as obscure as offside in Football (Gridiron, Soccer or Rugby).

That is to the riders. Fans could easily be unaware of it because it never happens.

Agree totally. When I bought my road bike a steel frame Diamondback was the last cut. If I had been a racer it would have won. Wonderfully responsive, too responsive for the kind of riding I did. But...

I'm pretty sure the Giro did this for the prologue a few years ago. Drag race. Fair because it was perfectly straight. Not very long 5 Kms. at most.
