For maximum exposure
, it behooves people to be known by the announcer.
I can call many riders from 200 meters away, because I've known them and their styles on a bike for years. But the majority of categories have me glancing at my laptop quickly to see who #546
It's not easy to remember thousands
of different names over a single season.
Again, the more I see you, or the more I call you, the easier it becomes.
Also helps if you stand out in a crowd. Certain position on the bike, long hair, tattooed from head to toe, gawdy kit, solo breakaways, the winner, etc...
