Thanks Ken - certainly looks like a tough one from the photos, large number of DNFs and two fairly high profile riders DQed???
The older I get, the faster I was! :P

DQing the winner and the runner-up does send a strong message but are we breaking a butterfly upon a wheel?

No. I understand the two riders concerned crossed a double white line in the face of oncoming traffic. May seem harsh and probably most of us have done it ( well drifted slightly onto the wrong side, not over a double line though) even if it's more due to momentary inattention while trying to hold your place and/or being forced out by dodgy riding in the bunch. There's never a place for taking risks with metal boxes but the Peebles road definitely isn't it.  Given that riders are well warned of the consequences in the pre race briefing and also the recent turn of events at the Dundee Thistle stage race it was perfectly fair.

Yeah, as Sandra said, don't forget about the Dundee stage race where the whole Saturdays stage got cancelled, so it could've been worse!

Both dq'ed riders say there was no oncoming traffic so I may have been misinformed or picked things up wrongly - or maybe not. Anyway, a double white is a double white and in the current climate where some people would be only to keen to fabricate reasons to get racing off the open roads I stilll think it had to be done.

I think one of the dq'ed rider's responses on Braveheart is pretty gracious in the circumstances, so here's hoping it all blows over and we can back to riding bikes and organising races. We need to stick together and keep racing in its rightful place. I'll even extend the hand of friendship to the person who referred to ERC as a "joke" (not one of the riders on Wednesday night I hasten to add, and not on the Braveheart site).
