I am going along this Sunday, already entered online. Been doing a few cross-country events recently, so might be a bit of a change doing some road running. Never done a road race so a PB for me even if the course is a bit undulating.
If you do ever get serious hassle like abuse from a large group of cyclists then report them. Generally a large group is either in a race, so report to race organisers/course marshalls with a few race numbers, or a club ride so at least a few will have club colours on. If you have no luck straight away then report the entity responsible to the cycling governing body. Any like minded groups hate it when a few muppets spoil it for others. Cyclists racing on open roads are still required to follow the highway code, I have been in races stuck at traffic lights before, to see a jerk jump them - a shame he didn't getting a finish time as I reported him and he got DQd, revenge is sweet
Hopefully there aren't any glitches with the timing, it was the first time that the tagging software had been used in anger. I did have some quite large log files to trawl through afterwards just to make sure everything looked OK, but any feedback is appreciated.
Improvements already in the pipeline with respect to how the live race results will be displayed. Unfortunately the large monitor we had was of a lower resolution than expected which caused problems with the later finishers disappearing off the edge of the display. Plus I am looking at a better tag construction, although we only seemed to have lost a small handful over the course of the race.
