Who's already thinking about next year? :) It's taken me a week, but I'm 95% unpacked and recovered from this year. Another big adventure!

If anyone has suggestions about improvements for the time card, or the route book contents (ie, not the tulips, or the measurements, but forms and other information) I'd be interested in hearing them. :)

Cheers!
Anders

Anders- great job this year. Only suggestion would be to make the time cards out of VELCRO! I lost mine on day 2. I came off the bike and so did my time card, $100 bill, a go pro camera, and my CHAP STIK. The thing I was most pissed about was my CHAP STIK. I had bacon lips by the end of the day...

So- not only did I get an hour penalty for loosing my card, but ALSO a half hour penalty on top of that for "missing final time control at LORETO " at the end of the test! Well no duh. I had no card so they did not count me for some reason.

Well I got in double trouble that cost me 90 min.

Did you crash and tear your whole jacket open? What happened?

I think you guys did a terrific job overall, especially in that environment and under difficult circumstances

The one thing I would ask to be changed is NO drag racing for 10 miles with 1 min gaps on pavement out of Loreto toward San Javier...

I really thought everything went very well ... perhaps a little earlier posting of bike starts day 1.
I really thought all time controls were well done no confusion
time cards were fine
All in All you guys did a great job I thought anyways,
perhaps a big clock at the start and finish of a special to keep track of your transfer time ... but that is really nit picking

In all the dust and low light, I slammed a concrete square cornered VADO at a good rate of speed on day 2 stage 1. This put me into a "flying squirrel" position hovering off the bike, ending in a body slam onto the handlebars and nav tower. Time card etc was in the pocket on the seat, which got ripped open and spilled the contents. Gopro must have snapped off the mount during impact as well.

I'll post a pic of my front rim, which now looks like a stop sign (OCTAGON)...

I think everything was GREAT! Very Professionally run! My only issue was with the Drivers meeting. I couldn't hear shit from the first guy that had all the important info! LOL!
Also, there was a bunch of a-holes that weren't even racing there too - all drunk and loud.
I don't know, maybe it had to do with my seating position, but i got as close as i could. When you spoke, I could hear...

I say keep the non-racers out! and maybe even publish all the important info from the drivers meeting online (later that night).

Or... maybe i should get a hearing aid and quit being a bitch!

Thanks for the great time NORRA!!

The road books rocked. We planned on running both the GPS and Road book on Honzilla Race #888 and our GPS crapped out two miles into the race. We went 1213 or so miles without it. I never missed not having the GPS honestly.

I was pleasantly surprised.

I 2nd that, awesome

My suggestion Anders is that you post the start order and time online everyday when you do results since not everyone is staying at host hotel or close.
