They actually hit the chain and turnbuckle that secures the gate. They got clotheslined in the worst way. You can see the chain in these pics:

There is always an element of danger in a pursuit like that even on a 100% safety checked and clean track.

Even with the best athletes in the world, the best coaches, the best equipment money can buy, under the best circumstances, etc.


To not check the track is insane.

It's evidence of a Suicidal Intention.
