You think it's the weather or crappy riders? Back when the Wednesday Night Worlds was going on, which uses the same RBM south route, we would RACE not ride. Balls out, no prisoners taken. Other than a couple of times people were hit by cars and a DART bus, no one ever wrecked due to bike handling, road conditions etc. I can recall riding down roads so swamped with water during heavy thunderstorms that I had to take my bottom bracket off my frame to get the water out!

Speed was the key to safety. The weak, the inexperienced, the lame, the halt, the blind, were simply spit off the back to fend for themselves, alone. Screw pack riding with idiots.
