Is there any rule or regulation regarding contact with other riders during a race. I'm curious about this as a safety issue. Riders are responsible for their own safety, I presume. BUT, Is it legal to punt another race off the track? This happened to me in the Mini Endurance and the fact that I'm still spitting blood from broken ribs prompts my to inquire. Are heavy weight riders allowed to ram light weight bikes off the track? /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif

The heavy mini in front of me that I was dicing with (I think it was 7, but maybe 4??) chopped his front wheel in the rattle snake. He went down pretty hard.
