timing procedure question
i have looked all over and cannot find any specifics regarding timing procedures.
i could make a phone call and waste someone's time solely for my own benefit... or ask here where you can't throw a rock without hitting someone who knows..
i think i understand that there is a run up of x number of miles and then x number of timed miles then x number of shut down miles.
i think i understand that your speed has to be time over a full mile, i.e. if you turn out after 1/4 mile of timing, no slip.
does that mean that you only need to complete 1 timed mile and the rest are optional? or must you complete the course?
if you complete more than one timed mile, is the highest or last speed recorded?
i am sure for you 200mph guys that 3 miles of time goes by faster than you want it to but what if a bike is wound all the way out after the first mile and no point in abusing it any more?
