What were they thinking? Oh My God! What race organizing committee in their right mind would allow motor vehicle traffic to run directly into a charging peloton of bicycle racers?

Obviously those in charge of the Professional Men's race in downtown Crystal City Virginia this past Sunday. As you can see the action was fast and furious and then it just got to be stupid.

An oncoming motorist causes the first bit of carnage hitting a cyclist and apparently a race marshal. Then comes the peloton looping back through the same area unaware of the damage that was in front of them.

How nobody got seriously injured or killed in this chaos is amazing to me. Four people were transported to the hospital to receive treatment for their injuries none of which reported to be serious.
