What is a Graded Scratch Race race?

A graded scratch race is a mass start event with riders of similar ability race together in their grade. Each grade starts at the same time and cover the same distance with the winner being the first rider to cross the finish line. You are not allowed to use another grade to help you if you are dropped or passed by another grade.
