we are running the state TT this season and the numbers are pretty low for pre-reg...
it occurs to me that there is a noticeable trend in the various masters age groups, specifically certain brackets being much larger in terms of numbers than others.
Here's our breakdown:
M30+ 3 riders
M35+ 6 riders
M45+ 21 riders
M55+ 9 riders
M60+ 9 riders
M65+ 3 riders
yes, all the numbers are small, but I am mainly interested in the proportions, and specifically wondering what thoughts you all have as to why the 30+ and 35+ groups seem to generally be smaller than the older groups, and why the 45+ is almost always the largest group by a wide margin. I have seen this almost across the board except for large events that fill up such as Battenkill.
(I should mention that the 40+ at Bkill is the first to fill though)
