Just mostly to blame. The men's race was not any better. The people who okayed that course should be put up against the wall. The men ended up with the disgrace of Cavendish as world champion.
Women's racing can offer more exciting racing because there is a large variance in performance, much larger than there is for the men. A lot of one day races should have a women's race that finishes an hour before the men's.
