Every year this comes up as an issue at IM Florida and not surprisingly it did again this year. With such a flat course and a mass start, there is very little that you can do if you get swarmed by a peleton. Check out this great video from the race this past weekend....
With the exception of more referee's and staggered starts, I'm not that sure what else the race could do. The non mass start certainly worked at IM Louisville this year and as far as I saw there were not many packs that formed....besides the rolling terrain makes it a far more difficult course. It will be interesting to see if IM/WTC take any action for 2010.

- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
