Annoying cycling stuff

by gbsmith4

So I’m doing this time trial on Sunday.  Signed up a few days ago when my plans firmed up.  Of course the deadline to sign up is tonight at 10pm, but I never wait that long as I figure the organizers want to know how many are coming as soon as possible.

Annoying, then, that so many folks wait until the absolute final minute to register.  As an example, right now at 11:30pm, there are 17 men entered in my event.  I bet between now and tomorrow, the number goes to 25.

Seriously, what are these people waiting for?  Are they trying to game the event, seeing exactly what category they should enter in order to have their best chance at winning $20?

I’m telling you: masters racing is one whacky sport….
