I cannot for the life of me figure out why, once again, the 35+ Cat 1/2/3s are starting 5 minutes AFTER the Elite 4s at Snelling. Do the motorcycle referees just need extra practice neurtralizing entire fields? For the last two years, the neutralizing has taken place just miles into the race and right after the promenade. In effect, this has just served to lengthen the promenade for the Cat4s.
Perhaps there's a rhyme to this reason that I just can't see?
