Not everyone leaves the start at the same time; you're racing the clock.

Ahhh ok

I would think the more lower the elevation, the intensity of the race kicks in like crazy. Never seen something like that before.

I assumed that much. . . assumed the same about the aprilia as well I <3 the SXV's, just can't justify the cost with my riding style and experience level kinda like a lot of the noob's on brand new litre bikes, amazing machines, just a waste of horsepower and ability in most cases
