Ok that was ridiculous. We still need to make a distinction between the severity of the move and the severity of the effects I think. Of course it was a bad move, but it's made to look worse because of its effects.

***. These guys are going 80km/u. The move is the effect.

They say, Jakobsen is conscious but bleeding. I honestly thought he would die.
They said the same about Lambrecht. Let's hope this time will be different.

I'm from Poland and my friend is close to the finish line, they say lot of blood in the place of the crash and ambulances on sirens are going from the place of the crash to the hospitals

Or maybe we should judge moves by the potential severity of their effects and start punishing erratic/dangerous behaviour in sprints much more severely, regardless of their outcome.
 
Injury wise, I think it looked more spectacular than it was for Jakobsen. An important part of the impact was damped by the barrier before he hit anything. And the helmet probably did its job too.

That spectator on the other hand was simply hit full on on the upper body/head. Scary.
Yeah initially I thought he directly impacted the finish 'arc'. I was relieved a bit when I was him tumble across the barrier first, as weird as it feels to say that.
