A proper mass start is when everyone starts at the same time. However, for the Mourne MM we hold a rolling mass start on the Sunday morning for all teams between 08:00 and 08:45. You can start any time within this window and your Start Time is registered in the Control Box. Teams are free to use this window to competitive advantage.
