Since we don't get bike road racing coverage here... can someone explain a few things to me? Since every time I watch it it seems terribly exciting, I just have no idea what's going on
Why do they start in waves? How are the waves decided? It has sounded like it's still part of the same race in some other vids I've watched (not a lower class), can someone from the second wave win the race?
Also, I watched another vid just now from the related links... it was a superbike race I guess, but they were referring to some of the riders being on supersport bikes. What's the difference between the bikes, why can someone from a different class compete in the superbike race, and why are they actually able to maintain similar speeds?
