principle? best riders always go last. dont you ever watch the tour?
This is not the Tour, stage race starting positions are different. For 'one day' time trials, top seeded riders should be placed in each ten minute starting time and lesser seeded riders are on the five minute mark.

The exception to this is that teams (trade and provincial) should have their riders staggered (ideally into waves as at Gatineau) and not be placed back to back. This allows for their teams to better support them.
The fact that the U23's and elites are all jumbled together in the men's race is inexcusible, if weird weather is to roll in it could have a huge impact on the race as some U23's ride at vastly different times. Its less of an issue for the elite men were the top seed is more predictable. (Svein is going to win, sorry to ruin the surprise).
