Everyone that rides a trial also
observes that trial. Here’s how it will work:
Riders are divided into 3 groups-A, B, and C at signup.
Within each group, they are also assigned a number from 1 to 8.
So everyone has a unique designation:
A1, B6, etc. Minimum of 24 riders needed.
After the riders meeting, everyone heads out to the course.
A riders report to their section to observe. A1 goes to section 1, etc.
B riders start their first loop.
C riders start their first loop.
After one loop
B riders report to their section to observe and relieve
the A riders
start their first loop
riders continue and start their second loop.
report to their section to observe and relieve the B riders
B riders start their second loop
A riders continue and start their second loop.
Once the third loop is complete, all will have ridden two loops and observed one loop.
Then A again reports
to their section to relive the C riders and the process repeats.
At the end of the day, all will ride 4 loops and observe two. This should go
pretty quickly since only 2/3 of the riders are on the course at any given loop and there is an observer at each section.
