I also disagree with the Officials comment that the sprint was not engaged. Being there, there was no question they were going full gas. While I know officials are only human, this was a no-brainer. Full disclosure, I train with Steve.
The contact caused the rider to panic, and the panic caused the crash. He easily could have stayed up, is my point.
