Another one, and this time a death.

You know, when I was racing, it was all small local stuff, except I did the Nationals one year. Except the Nats, all our races had open roads. And it blew me away how many riders would cross the center lines.

However, we are told in the article that this race had open roads where the crash occurred. But it also sounds like they had partial closure. So I don't quite know what to think, except that there is too much of this going on. And for races of this caliber, one would think there should be a larger focus on avoiding this.
