I have been getting excited for Leadville next week... and then they sent out the race guide. I get to start DFL...
Corrals will be assigned based on previous finish times:
Pros, sub 9-hour finishers, invited riders
9:00 to 9:59 finishers
10:00 to 10:29 finishers
10:30 to 10:59 finishers
11:00 to 11:29 finishers
11:30 to 12:00 finishers
First timers (that's me)
Update: I just got this e-mail from a pro rider (friend):
"My honest opinion is that anyone who thinks they are strong enough to be worrying about start position, should therefore be strong enough to find their way around 1,000 slower riders over the course of over 6 miles."
Awesome honesty... and I can't disagree even a little.
