I don't know, not like the guy in white cut him off or ran into him on purpose, shit happens when you're putting that much power down, mechanical failures, any number of things. I wonder why they sprint so close to each other side by side, there wasn't really anybody else boxing them in once they broke away from the main group. But then again I'm no racer.

Looking at it slo-mo, dark jersey's helmet saved his life. You could see his head smash into the pavement and what looks like a chunk of his helmet fly off. Guy in white lands square on his shoulder, at that speed and impact no doubt some serious damage. And copious road rash to all involved guaranteed.

I think you're responsible for your own ride regardless of the situation. There's no one assessing fault to cover damages

so insurance is not included in the $120 fee for this high risk sport

Ouch!
Yeah, like any other event, all participants have to sign waivers and assume the risks involved. They all have to have their BC Cycling licences as well, which provides some insurance.
But thanks for posting this, as this happens right in front of my office building. I'm going to go out there right now and look for bike parts...or blood on the street.

Apparently the week before there was a huge crash in Cat D races or something.

No video, but just finish line photos. You can see one guy leaning into another guy super hard at the line.

They went into the curb, and from what I read one of the guys went into a lamp post. Broken femur, shoulder, bikes etc

I think the insurance is to cover personal injuries, lost wages due to injuries, etc etc. Fairly similar sort of coverage to other sports leagues I would imagine.

Can't wait til hackers can hack into wireless shifting, lol.

On a more serious note, I can see live with plugging in di2 central battery pack once in a while. But having to charge the rear mech, front mech, and shifter batteries independently seems arduous. All for the convenience of not having to run electronic cables during first time setup. Cool and a bit gimmicky, but I'm not entirely sold

If it's anything like amateur car racing that would be the case. I know when my dad used to race the Arca series he had someone do something really stupid and run him into the wall, caused thousands in damages and he never got so much as a sorry.

I'd expect cycling to be the similar.
