TOH 4's Road Race
Posted 23 April 2012 - 06:18 AM
Neutralizing a race on any Road Race course is difficult for an Official but with the unknowns of where an injured rider is and when the Ambulance is going to catch and overtake the field, it just adds to the situation.
The riders yesterday took my shouted commands with no complaints and did exactly what was asked of them.
It made it easy to keep you guys rolling and not have to completly stop for the Ambulance to pass.
It was also helpful to have a great team of Pace/Follow vehicle drivers, so thanks to Jeff for that.
Great job all the way around.

As for the what happened? I have heard that a group was sprinting for the KOM points and got tangled. One racer went down and ended up with a compound fracture of the collarbone. If anyone has more accurate information, please feel free to chime in.
