Absolutely but TT's have pretty much no bike handling dangers like close pack riding events (crit/road race). Those guys who sit on Zwift all day on a TT bike hooked up to their trainer....news flash- they aint running to sign up for a crit now that they can get a "cheaper" combo membership. It's going to be a very specific and truly small demographic of triathletes who actually cross over between the two organizations, and the ones that likely do go to race crits, I'm guessing will most likely be able to handle their shit OR be no worse than the other "newbie" knuckleheads that crash out people now in events.
So this idea that dave is suggesting that bad bike handling triathletes are going to fill crit races and crash out more people, I think it's complete non issue. None of those people want to do crit races, and they won't.
But do I agree with his point, yes. I just think it's a real non-issue. Anyone who never does anything with their handling of course will be a liability in close quarters. I just don't think those people will actual show up and race in crits and thus be an issue.
