The parade lap works as such;
if you buy into a pkg deal that offers a parade lap wrist band,or sticker displayed to show parade lap priviledges.varies from year to year.
you show the gate attendent or ticket taker your band and they direct you to the lap staging area.
After you sign the release and your bike checks out for loose parts or leaking stuff they stage you in groups 10-15 riders.
helemet,shoes is the only requirement.
your group stages up,the group leader a IMS rider starts off then they allow the pack to take off,no one rides faster than the lead IMS rider and the last rider is another IMS rider,to make sure no one lags behind and gives those sudden bursts of throttle and wheelies it also.
Theres plenty of gaps to give the burst if you get seperation from the lead riders.
usually the the first 3-4 riders are the GP wannabe riders who race to the finish trying to be the first across the line.but its a short lived race because you dont pass the lead IMS rider.
