Sounds so simple, well are you racing? This question was brought up over the weekend after some racers got pulled in one of the local races. Well, it was a “race” and it was sanctioned by a racing organization so it’s pretty clear we are racing, right?
Racers sign up, drop around $40 bucks for the experience which for some equates to about a dollar a minute and everyone (who is racing) is expecting to stand on that podium. It’s winner takes all and in regards to being lapped, one commenter says, “If you're concerned about getting lapped/pulled, you're not racing, you're participating and neither the promoter/referee owe you anything besides a start. The rest in your problem….If getting lapped is still a concern at this point, you're in the wrong category. “
