There is nothing in the rule book that mandates the "race" be head on head. Many races are won by minimum time against the clock. For example all skiing events, Bobsled, Luge, etc.

While it is nice to have all start at the same time... in [sic]is not
mandatory and in fact would most likely solve the issues of congestion
at the Tevis by spreading the riders out on the trail... Say 50 start
every 10 to 15 minutes. A random draw could be used to determine
starting time. The rider gets 24 hours from his starting time and the
ride time is used for placing.

Good and valid points in a world where we have so much more technology available to help us. Tracking just wouldn't be the chore it was 30 years ago and I bet it won't be long before every rider will have the hand held capacity to track every other rider and thus know how his elapsed time compares to all the others.
