My understanding is that the 'escape road' is just that, an escape road if it all goes wrong.
Which it did.
However, it's not meant to be an alternative route if the rider fails to make the corner- like others have said, if it wasn't there you can bet your bottom dollar riders wouldn't be taking the same chances.
Using the escape route MUST have a mediocre time penalty to discourage riders out braking themselves and using it.
Sykes was a fraction in front of Guinters when he ran off and rejoined in exactly the same place. Surely that's not on? A rider shouldn't be able to rejoin without losing at least a second relative to their previous position... ..or yielding a place when in a dog fight.
