Just a P.S.
When you watch this, you will wonder (as you should) how so many competitors in a mass start can NOT be following each other, the courses are very heavily "forked", meaning there are variations. You must be reading your map and doing your own navigation, as you have NO idea which of many "forks" could be yours ...especially early in the leg. An electronic timing chip on each runner's finger is used to record the time at which you reached each control.
