    Me again: After yesterday’s national championships (roadrace) over here in Germany, I’d like to know if the situation ist similar in other countries as it is here:

    In our race, it was 4x à 26 km (about 350 m up each round) to be done. Women started at 8 AM, men at 11 AM. There was an official time limit of 15 minutes that had already been reduced to 10 immediately before the race.

    Nevertheless, a lot of riders were taken out of the race after the 2nd round and another big lot after the 3rd, even though they hadn’d reached the time limit at all. Amongst them were many strong riders, not riding internationally for the most part (but some of them!), but strong nationally. Hence, in the end, the majority of the riders had not had the chance to finish the race. They told them they had expected them to get slower every round and due to this calculation taken them out in advance.

    Even though Worrack, Lichtenberg, Brennauer and Co. delivered a great race, to me, it doesn’t sound fair to organize National Championships that are only tailored to the small field of profesionals and, most of all, to the mens’ race….

    I’d like to know how it was organised (day and time of races, same day?, same procedures? differences? opinion and feelings of participants, number of participants in various countries etc.); would you be able to list that?

      Hey Annie – This is a really good question, and I would only be able to answer this for a small handful of federations with which I’m familiar (USA, UK, Australia, Sweden) – which wouldn’t be a representative sample. Let me see what I can do to round up some answers. If it merits a story of its own, we’ll put one together – and if not, I’ll just hop back in the comments section. Stay tuned!

        That comment by Annie on pulling riders does seem to highlight a contempt held by some race organisers for the Am riders who take part in the National events.The British National Road race appeared to let most of the riders at least finish the race.
        The practice of pulling riders who are not to far back does not in my book help to encourage people to enter these races in order to improve themselves or help to boost their confidence.
