I like seeing age-grading for the fun of it, but as any type of way to affect the results…nope.
the winner is the first person to cross the line (unless they took an early start–not a fan of early starts for people that need a day and half to do something they aren't ready for) first.  Not a fan of chip timing to scue that either.  If you arrive at the race 15 minutes late, you shouldn't be 1st in your age group to someone that got themselves there on time, dealt with the crowd, just because your chip says it took you less time…you ran a time trial, not a race.
