Clearly these

Cyclist kills pedestrian (again)?

But this *cannot* happen (we've been told that so many times here).

But still, if the cyclist had been driving a car, it would have been worse.

Yes, if the cyclist had been driving a car in such circumstances there
would have been 5 dead and 25 injured.

But we would be told the driver wasn't at fault. Like most of the 400
drivers every year that kill a pedestrian.

Even if there were only one pedestrian there?

Well, over time, the ratio is normally something like 200 to 1 but in
this case it seems the rider was taking part in a publicly sanctioned
race on a route lined with people spectating. So unless people and
pedestrians are different things, I think it is fairly safe to assume
there was more than one.

Here's the $64,000 one: why would a contestant drive a car in a bicycle
race?

Plenty of cars are driven in bicycle races. Must the driver be a contestant?

Besides, that isn't the point as you (should) know perfectly well.

What would you consider the clause "...taking part in a publicly
sanctioned race on a route..." to mean?

Supervising the race or taking part in it?

Do you really expect a response to that?
