Crashes are are common part of sport. It would be easy to be rattled by such an uncontrollable event however with proper planning and preparation, the effects could be mitigated. Most elite riders have had conversations with other elite riders about such an incident so that even if they had never experienced such a crash personally, they can learn from others experiences and attempt to avoid the circumstances. Normalizing the experience doesnt make it less an issue, only makes the rider more able to cope with the shock and continue with a business as usual approach.
