    I think it's a tracking error, the leader board shows 4X making up time between CP2 and CP3. Not sure who is on...

    Edit: Ugh, I take that back, 4x tracker just started moving again and it looks like he's way back. Long time at CP3.

    According to RDZ, 4X was making a rider change after CP3. Bell taking over for Pearson. Maybe they had to make some bike repairs while pitting...

    4x showing 0mph again. I hope it's just an error.

    Looks like 2x (Ramirez) is reeling in 1x a bit. About 3 mins difference, adjusted.

    Looking at the Race Flow screen shows 4X stopped for a long while at RM 367 and Arredondo (349X) appears to have stopped there breifly as well. Hoping it wasn't a bad crash for Bell...

    It was 4 miles before the Pit.
    they are using Baja pits and have to try to stretch some runs
    THR 4X is a private team with NO!!!! factory support
    and have to really on friends to help pit
    I could not help this race do to being on 24 call out for work.

    I wouldn't be so sure. The trackers don't appear to be updating at the same time and the riders are so close together (1X and 2X) that it appears that they're swapping positions and bangin bars.

    Looks like all it's going to come down to is whoever has the better day with the least "incidents" will win.
