Neither of those guys were riding very smart. Yeah, the first dude did a better job at maintaining control, the second dude, just plain lucky (don't think it was a Versys though) but both seemed to be riding either faster than what is safe for the situation and/or way too impatient and both probably could have been looking a little farther ahead. Maybe the first guy would have been less surprised by all the water and would have slowed sooner and perhaps found a better road position (if he wasn't already in the best spot for the situation).
Glad they both made it out OK.
