I understand most of the way it works but not sure about the bit that states "All riders that have crossed the finish line get the same time as the front most rider if they are connected in an unbroken line of riders".
Does this mean that if 3 riders finished consecutively 1,2 and 3 spaces from the finish line, that all 3 would move there tokens 3 spaces back on the time tracker? But the first 2 would also move a further space back?
Great game, really enjoying it.

They all get the same time as the rider that goes furthest past the finish line. But only if there are no vacant space between them.
If you use the app (for either iOS or Android), it will keep track of the times for you.

Yes, they all get the same time as the first one if there are no spaces between them. The riders who finished in first and second place also get the bonus of 10 seconds.

Thanks all. So presumably the idea is that the riders finished so close to each other there was barely any difference in their times? Very thematic.
Yes, I've got the app but I like pushing tokens around on a card..

It's just like real-life bike racing. Riders who finish in an unbroken group are all given exactly the same time as the first rider in that group.
