I guess they will follow last year ramp scheme, but 2013 there is a stage after the ramp.
Can someone confirm this?
No issue on insisting, just trying to find out in advance what the process will be; although reverse order would set the slower guys off first and have a worn track for the better riders? - unless the results of this small "prologue" are irrelevant with the first real race stage, i.e. SS2 being back to race order with #1 off first?
With a 13k stage a staggered interval may not matter too much, but again it depends on the stagger, as 30 secs is catchable given a coule of small errors in riding?
