First Aiders and Ambulance Staff don't move anyone without carefully assessing their injuries and try to get them gently to hospital within the "Golden Hour" In massive trauma accidents of this size there is a maximum "2-4" minutes not a "Golden Hour" to get breathing started and blood flow stopped and the reality of waiting for the race to be red flagged the bikes in and an ambulance to be brought onto the race track to work on an injured rider on the race track itself would have taken far too long. The rider has the best chance in the medical centre thats fully equipped and fully staffed and all other injuries take 2nd place to blood loss and breathing. The medical staff and marshalls make choices instantly that they have to ponder over after the event. I think they tried their best...if anything can be learned from this tragedy its removing the astro turf that the bike skidded on before it happens again! Its only there for colour so paint the tarmac green
