In the Foster 100, every rider is assigned to a platoon. These riders, grouped together based on speed, experience and personal preference, complete the entire ride together. The platoons care for each other, motivate each other and stick together. Each platoon is assigned a Platoon Leader, a SAG vehicle, motorcycle escorts and a mechanic.
Each rider selects their expected pace during registration. This is different than average speed. Pace is the speed the platoon will travel on a flat, windless road. The platoon’s average speed will end up being slightly lower than the pace assigned.
Platoon assignments are announced approximately one week before the Foster 100.
