I know first hand from the Furnace Creek 508(Now Silver States 508) I believe that they had hidden meaning in the rules so that they knew you read the entire set of rules.
One had if you had read these rules bring a 2 lb. bag of M & M candy with you to the riders meeting. Not sure how this applies to this ride though as the riders are only to get support at the assigned rest stops. one had bring a brown envelope with you to the meeting. We wrote on a white envelope this is a brown envelope. lol I guess where you have money involved or big bragging rights you have a chance of this happening. Unlike on the roadie end where you can have spotter cars watching what is going on this isn't feasible on gravel rides. Maybe what they might have to do is have undercover ride marshals on the course. That would have to be kind of crazy to do that though. I thought in most rules that I read that 2 different teams had to challenge a rule breaking from a rider/riders within a certain time limit after the finish. Curious as to why this rider wasn't turned in before they even gave her a finish time or guessing maybe no ride marshals at the rest stops. Not sure as I have never done the ride. Zman
If it was easy it wouldn't be a memory. You just hope you don't have all your memories in the same ride. been there dun that Zman
