2. I will still have team categories (Male, Female, Co-Ed, Total Age > 100.) but understand that most people will not have a partner. If riders show up without partners then they will start with someone else but will be recorded as a solo rider, without a teammate. Example: if you show up without a partner and so does another rider, you two will start at the same time (one ascending Round Top, the other Tantalus Dr.) and I will record your times individually. This will keep track of your weekly progress without the obligatory feeling of having the same partner every week. Does this make sense? I will be providing prizes at the end of my series. Some ideas are: Most Improved Team/Individuals, etc. I will also throw in some fun little prizes for those who showed up the most or to all events.
3. The first pair will start at 7AM. Riders will start in one and a half minute intervals. This will keep the roads less congested and it will also make it easier to record times at the top.
