Where to put bib numbernoveread

I have a road race this weekend and I am not sure where to put the number. The race is long and the temperature will climb 15-20degrees during the course of the race. I plan on wearing a wind vest that I can shed during the race. Do I put the number on the vest or jersey underneath? I assume on the jersey underneath?

Around here, it can be different every race, depending usually on how the finish is set up. Sometimes rear, sometimes right or left side, etc.

If you know will remove a vest, put on the jersey. Make sure the number is visable at the finish or you won't get scored.

Always ask an official.

Chances are good @ 20 degs you'll be taking the wind vest off. If for some reason you don't take it off go back to the officials after you finish and tell them what you were wearing and what your number is. Pay attention to the numbers of the people that you finish with, that will help the officals place you.
