The first sled (women´s single) starts in a time window of 30 sec, the timing is triggered by light barrier. At the finish, the athlete has to trigger the contact - to open the start gate - for the second sled (men´s single), but at the same time the clock continues to run. The third sled (double) can start when the second athlete has hit the finish stop and the start gate opens. Thus, the second starter or the double must have a quick reaction time. If the double hits the finish stop, the clock stops and the total time for the team relay is determined. If an athlete does not hit the finish stop by hand, the relay team is disqualified.
