I agree that Sphinx are really only good for long points/scratch races, but Scatto's IMO can be used for any events you would use normal drop bars except madison. UCI rules state that in a mass start race, you must be in the drops at all times (excluding madison) so if it is the lack of hand positions on the scatto's that worries you, it shouldn't really be an issue.

It would be a shame to smash up a perfectly good set of scatto's in a scratch race pile up though...
