Once we are past the initial section and end up in the left lane (no shoulder), the road is fine all the way unitl just before the end.

I'm not sure if its the rider that James hit, but a guy got a flat and had no choice but to pull out onto the road, there was no opportunity for him to move left as he was in the right hand lane of bikes, with no gaps to his left.

I didn't know that James F had been unconscious, I just found that out.

There were a couple of RBCC riders who took the shortcut, so it was either them or a small bunch of other riders who were also out there.

According to my LACC mate, its windy and the riders get strung out in a single line, meaning that you are at risk if you are too far back of being dropped due to a split.
