Everyone talks about the hole shot, but who gets the shot really doesn't matter much; there are no "shot" results. The mastery of the shot has been honed over the years and while everyone wants it, only one wins. This frequently self-proclaimed title is sometimes obvious (one rider is away in seconds) and sometimes takes awhile to sort out. To date, we do not know of any rules--length, duration, end--to the hole shot.
Here in web 2.0, we pay homage to the holeshot.
