anthem Posted May 27, 2014 Report Share Posted May 27, 2014 and this is the reason I keep telling people (CSS and others) as to why I keep going back riding with CSS. . I would rather pay the 475/day fee to get instruction and have a nice safe track day that is well run than deal with the stuff/ego/bumping/politics of these track day orgs (especially prevalent in the Northeast). . In this particular one this is N2 (successor to Nesba) and the control rider/coach is leading a rider (camera bike) that wants to get bumped to "A". . well, control rider ignores the rider that has gone down at the :05 second mark, ignores the red flags that comes out and keeps going causing an accident that takes him and another rider out. Granted the last rider probably should have raised his hand before perhaps slowing down, but if you're an instructor/control rider you should know in your head that a biker has gone down and that red flags are coming out. In this particular case, he said the rider that went down looked to be getting on their feet (not true) and that no red flags were out yet (also not true). Red flag was frantically waving at the :30 second mark of the tape and can clearly be seen. Accidents happen, we all know it. You just want to try and minimize your chances which is why I continue to choose to ride with CSS. I tip my hat off to Trevor who runs a tight ship and is one of the primary reasons why I ride and hopefully minimize chances for idiocy like this one. Not sure if its a good thing, but apparently this video has made it onto Fox News and Good Morning America already. So it might be a black eye on track riding. . ..
