Jay can you type out the Start and Finish specs you went over at the pre-race party?

Might help clear some confusion for those that were unable to attend.

Big R, there is not two race classes. Everyone is in the same except I am asking some riders to wait 15 seconds before taking off.
There will be prizes for men and women and also misc prizes that will be drawn randomly.
I will cover the start and finish in an email that will be coming out soon.
thanks
jay

Default Hey gang

Although I drew the 9th spot, my understanding from discussion at the pre party was to launch, and slowly move out of the way as I am not competing but just completing.

If a better scenario is to stand in position, acknowledge my 9th spot launch, and then forfiet launch until later position, that is fine by me.

I completely understand the seriousness of those competing and my main goal is to have another great time hanging with you guys and enjoy the down winder and after party.

I'm confident by race time, you guys will have this figured out. My concern is safety first and then just enjoying the ride...

So, I am completely happy to give up/ or hold my number 9 spot... Just don't want to cause a administrative nightmare...

Again, this is 100% for fun and not a competition... although Josh T. is giving me an 1.5 hour handicap for a small wager... :P maybe 1:45... ops:

Thoughts?

For those in attendance at the pre-party, Jay discussed the procedure in detail. This forum and the race website are a place for the people who did not attend the pre-party to learn about the starting procedure but I think that the race committee and Jay in particular have decided on a starting line procedure and it is definitely a reasonable one IMO...

Competitors start first, leisure riders launch and start 15 seconds later. Pretty plain and simple.
