    This is an excellent article and the discussion of rider safety is long over due. My wife and I are avid recreational cyclists and long time fans of bicycle racing. We have been troubled by the lack of safety in cycling compared to all other sports – from American football to motor sports. Like many that follow cycling, we were horrified by the road race crashes at the last Olympics in Rio. Cycling is 20 years and more behind other sports when it comes to safety. It is important to note that competitive cyclists will be slow to call for better safety, due to their fear of retaliation and the warrior mentality they posses as part of their competitive nature. Articles like this and the study mentioned in the article will contribute greatly to the long term vitality of cycling as a sport and safer careers for the racers we all admire.
