The slowest group will start first, the second slowest group will start a few minutes behind and so on.  The time intervals between the different groups is determined by the Handicapper.  The Handicapper will take all sorts of things into consideration when determining who is to be in each of the groups and the start interval (riders’ previous race results, who in the various trade teams have entered, weather conditions, course profile, etc).

Separate Racing (Cat3 and Ladies)

The Category 3 and ladies will be on the circuit at the same time. Should the races merge at any time the race that is being caught must be neutralised.
