Maybe (and that is a big maybe) a top rider could have avoided this particular car, but maybe the next one would have given even less warning. This is not to say the rider would have been at "fault", but you can be both right and in the hospital.

Save that kind of speed for the a street with a lot less intersections or better yet the track.
