Al true, buuuuuut one of the greatest moments of my life was when I did an endo 10cm from an infant, whose mom was walking him onto the bike lane. The look on her face was priceless.

comment How much does tire pressure affect the weight of the wheels
@dlu, I didn't consider that (so may answer is wrong). Still wouldn't weigh as much as in vacuum.

It's actually the commute to the insurance office and then to the bike shop that I am tight-fisted about - that's half a day riding in dangerous city traffic. I fully agree with your point that the money goes to a good place (and insurance money go to mountain rescue parties). However, I suspect race organisers get most of their funding from sponsors (rough estimate).

@Criggie, most probably I am not using the correct term. You pay about 1 euro for a day or 15 euro for a year. If you call the national mountain rescue teams, you have the first 500 euro "free". If you purchase a more expensive insurance (only the basic is required for races), you can cover the cost on a heli evac or a multi-man multi day search party.

Do you classify as "closed" an XC race, where on crossing asphalt roads, signs have been put for cars to pass with care?
