I was following the Tour of Utah and the 1,000 Warriors event, because they’re run practically in my own backyard. Utah has some great scenery, including mountains, lakes, and canyons, as well as legendary destinations like Moab for mountain bikers. Obviously, it has a certain amount of appeal for road races too.
UnfortunateIy, I also feel that Utah has the worst drivers of any state and/or country I have visited. Which is why I wasn’t surprised at all to see this article, about a tragic crash today.
I’m not sure I’m totally comfortable with UDOT’s response either, but I’ve seen how they maintain the roads here, and suppose it’s only fair to have low expectations of them.
Let’s hope Dave Collins is able to quickly recover and get back on the bike.
