Poor Race Organisation

Did anyone see this. The marshals getting there left and right mixed up

I think it was more about the organisers not having a division/barriers between two 'lanes' of riders moving at high speed in opposite directions and then putting that poor female volunteer smack bang in the middle of it.
The marshalls having to deal with a worsening crisis situation and getting their left & right mixed up is a minimal issue in my opinion....

No surprise that poor woman got clobbered. Can't believe they had no barriers.

Kudos to the guy trying to bunny-hop over her - obviously didn't clock her until the last fraction of a second in all the confusion, did well to turn a full force hit with a skinny wheel at 50km/hr into a light brush. Pity he ended up crashing when he landed.
