However, I have to balance this with not going out there and then the downed rider getting hit anyway because I didn't go out and try and prevent it.
Every situation is different and you can only hope you make the right decision in the fraction of a second you have to think about it.
Typically, I find MARRC folks are some of THE bravest Cornerworkers you are likely to come across, and rarely put their own well being ahead of helping crashed racers.
