Finish Line!

Postby Darin Williams » Tue Mar 31, 2009 2:22 pm

Well another season is upon us and we have yet to do something as easy as have a safe and responsible finish line at our races. What is it gonna take? I hope it isn't having three people at the final check and two three riders all wad up in a huge mess with several people getting hurt! I thought that we all agreed that this would be an easy and smart thing to do!

there is always a starting line, why no finish line?!

I suggest asking where the finish line is at the riders meeting.
The promoter should point out an exact spot that is a clear line with some run-out if guys are battling to the end.
A little line of flour or a strip of tape would do nicely with strings of banners.

If the promoter avoids the question with a vague "it's over there someplace" answer then be ready to slam-dance all the way to the trucks!
