@Cooper Quinn, great write up. Another piece of good story telling on I do have to wonder who thought it would be ok to send a race along a lakeside bikepath, on a Sunday no less? I often use the lakeside bikepath for commuting here in town, and even that can be an issue, and I am going well below 30km/h solo. I know, the ethos of gravel races is: ‘no closed courses’ , but that doesn’t mean you choose something like that. If that’s the only way into and out of town, adjust the finish, have a neutral rollout, what ever it takes. Sending a paceline of racers down a path at 40 km/h, where an old couple is out for a stroll, a toddler is running around their parents, and a 4 year old is learning to ride their bike? Big negative props to the organizers for that.
