El Tour is competitive at the pointy end, but just a big ol' group ride for most participants. It's fun! @Ttoc6 I highly recommend it. I have family there so I go every year.

If you finish under 5 hrs or are a P/1/2 you get the "Platinum" start, which is a separate roped off area at the front. It can be a little wild at first as people try to seed themselves into fast groups, and after that it can be pretty smooth and fast. There are only a few features on the course that force selections.
