A MASS START BIKE RIDE OR RACE IS AWESOME, because it’s so much more of a shared experience.
The energy when everybody starts lining up in their respective corrals is off the charts. Every single person can feel it, and you just get the idea that this is going to be a great day… that today could be your best ever HUNKR time.
We are all competing under the same conditions. This is cool because it gives us all a good idea of how we truly compare. For the slower people, it’s a chance to appreciate the speed of the pros. For the pros, it’s a chance to witness the heroic efforts of the first timers… to be a real pro at the finish and welcoming them to the party.
It’s like the best group ride ever: we time it and make sure you don’t have to stop along the way so you can go after your PR.
The after party kicks in as we all arrive back at the start. There’s great food and music, and cool exhibits to check out. Because we all start together, we get back to the finish about the same time as our friends and hang out and recover. What could be better?
Bonus: it makes the driving so much better when we can carpool with our friends. The animated chatter on the way over is sprinkled with laughter and big bets. But, it’s the drive home, reliving the highlights of the day that are the best… the way we take it all apart, congratulate each other and get right at planning how do better next time.
At HUNKR, you’ll be starting at the same time as everybody else. Everybody lines up based on their projected finish time – our supercrazypowerful software makes sure everybody is where they should be.
