|Brief interruption to start procedure|
For the Nove Colli the start is actually a series of separate mass starts with may be 2,000 going off at a time. These masses are groups down the sliproads, carparks and town streets of Cesenatico and then set off at intervals. When you enter you get a number and that indicates which start group to join - but even so get there early if you want to be at the front.
