Section start types (standing, rolling)

Updated
There exists "Standing", "Rolling start" and "Rolling Start with Time Window" section start types.

Section start type: Standing
  • Start at the DSS (start selective section) at your designated start time.
  • Sometimes roadbooks start with a liaison. Arrive at the DSS before your actual start time and plan accordingly.
  • The Timing Official (start referee) will allow you onto the track at your start minute.
Section start type: Open Rolling Start
  • No Timing Officials (start referee) are present at the start of the roadbook or the DSS.
  • Start riding at any time. Your actual start time at the DSS will be identified automatically by your GPS, the same for the finish (ASS).
Section start type: Rolling Start with Time Window
  • There is a specific time frame during which competitors can start the Special Section (at the DSS) using a rolling start. For example, competitors might have a rolling start window of 60 minutes, allowing them to start at any point within that time frame.
  • No Timing Officials (start referee) are present at the start of the roadbook or the DSS.
  • Cross the DSS within your designated start time window. Missing your window incurs a 60-minute penalty.The actual start time at the DSS will be identified automatically by your GPS, the same for the finish (ASS).
