Re: [RC] the sport - Truman Prevatt

I'm all for sanctioning the blatant repeat offenders but we aren't doing that either and I don't see it happening. On the other hand, I suspect when the data comes out it will turn out that excpet for a very few exceptions there won't be blatant repeat offenders, that deaths and serious treatments hit more or less at "random." It's not new riders that are the cause, it's not front runners that are the cause, etc. It happens across the board to riders in the front, back and middle with 100 miles or 10,000 miles.

And frankly I know plenty of people that won't let their kids play football because of the risk of injury.

I am in favor of making our sport as safe as possible. But I still feel that it's the blatant repeat offenders we need to be focusing on and quit scaring the newcomers just to make ourselves feel like we're doing something.
