each rider is set off at 1 mnute increments. Not everyone all at once. they are given a route card for a small portion of the route. the route card has corner by corner directions(Left, and right, with mileage to each turn, and street names). Also on the card is a speed. Your goal is to average that speed, over the distance shown on the card to arrive at the check point within a 1 minute window. Each minute early is a 3 point penalty, each point late is a 1 minute penalty. riving in your 1 minute window gets a zero. Lowest score wins. At each checkpoint the riders time is checked, and another section of the route is given to them. Time and distance accumulates until they get back to Dempseys for the lunch break. So, if you're 1 minute early, you will need to slwo down even ore, to avoid being 1 minute early at the next checkpoint also.
At the lunch break tripometers get zerod and time starts at zero again.
