This is Not Funny

OMG

as a Racer myself. I can not believe that race was not red flagged, I can not believe it was not put under a caution. It was also reported on speed, though I never seen the video of it. Folks this is not what racing is about. When people do shit like this it is deeply disturbing and sad.... why it is a risk every racer takes, it should not be exploited in such a manner. Stuff like that is not something to laugh at. If you have to laugh at the misfortunes of others then I seriously have to question your char.

I've seen a lot of bike races and crashes and that one was just terrible. This is an older clip. I can't believe the overall errors in judgement on the track workers part as well as the lack of immediate caution flags on corner leading into that section.

Generally, this is what occurs in bike racing:
1. A bike or rider down on the track is an instant red flag. The red flags come out and the red lights come on at every corner worker station.
2. Only once the corner workers see or hear on the two-way radios that every bike on the track is headed into the pits do they proceed onto the track.

What's truely sad is that someone would classify this as being "funny".

Yeah, it put me in tears. I am not a big fan of bike racing and don't understand their full rules but a cation red flagged should of been tossed on the track.
