Angus Ivory M16, 4 minutes behind you. If an M16 catches you 4 mins in less than 6k I don't think he's a rival, just a blur as he goes past!
Dixie once started 2 mins behind me, and I got a brilliant tow round once he went past. He definitely did not get any advantage out of it.
Swings and roundabouts isn’t it.....your name was last out of the hat for the MSV seeded block in the sprint so you have everyone to chase and none of your rivals chasing you. And we all know Sprint is your favourite discipline :)
Angus finished a few seconds behind me at SOL 2 so he's a rival!
I haven't looked at the start lists for the sprint 'coz I'm not bothered about them.
He's not a rival - there isn't a Blue trophy at the end of the year, just an M16 one and an M60 one. I would say it is an advantage having a speedy M16 starting behind - an incentive to keep ahead of him and a tow if you get caught.
