number boards 250wThe reason that the number of riders is restricted is because we have to make sure every rider has enough time to get round the route of the trial in daylight.  Riders are set off at one-minute intervals, and with 270 riders that means that there's a four and a half hour gap between the first and last riders leaving the Parc Ferme in the morning.  The route takes anything between six and eight hours to cover, and we need to allow a little leeway for delays, so fitting more riders into that time frame would be impossible.

We do get asked if we can set riders off every thirty seconds, thereby doubling the number of riders we could take in a day, but anybody who has ridden the trial will tell you that many of the sections are already congested with queues of riders....if we double that it would make the trial a logistical nightmare for everyone involved so I'm afraid we're stuck with our 270 limit until such time as there are more than 24 hours in a day.
