Refereeing Pro Cycling With BMW’s R1200GS Adventure

Often, you have different groups—mens, womens, professionals, amateurs—running simultaneously, in staggered fields. It’s up to us to ensure nobody’s breaking the rules, keep the competitors safe and informed, and manage the race. You need to be decisive. Let’s say the men are running slow, and the women are hammering, closing in on the back. Maybe you isolate the men, let the women pass. Maybe you pause the women, let the men rebuild their lead. But you still need to consider backmarkers and riders working back after a flat tire. Then there’s a wreck, and everything changes instantly. Like I said, complicated.
