Q: How does the start work? 

A: The Biking Blitz is a "mass start" event, where categories are set off at different times. You will be asked to line up 15mins before the depart time. Super Pro riders go to the front, followed by Baggy Shorts behind. There is a 5 minute gap in between each category to avoid queues into the first singletrack trail.
