    Very cool event love pros mixing it up with amateurs I’m sure though they don’t like the road stages with a bunch of sketchy cat 5’s. Wonder if they do the same thing the pros/cat 1’s do at our local Wednesday night crit (late in the season they race the P,1,2,3,and 4’s together) and just ride the first 10 minutes at like 35-40mph.

      I’m no pro but can confirm this is what gets done whenever people sense a disparity in ability; put the pressure on to get rid of the potential hazards. Happens in fast group rides and racing. In this case though, the pros were only riding below division one, they were brought on board mainly for fun and to share experience with riders; they “play nice” and try to keep the competition fair. In the past they’ve been known to work against sandbaggers to level the competition :p
