So if the inspectors miss something the first time, they can never look again? That is not how it works. Ever heard of a post race tear down? The organization may always check the bike again at any time and the rider must always be responsible for the legality of his equipment. From the FIM Regulations: 080.8.3 Technical Inspection during the Event During the whole event the FMNR Technical Steward, under the supervision of a Jury Member or the CRT Technical Director, can check any motorcycle. The time spent for this test will be granted to the rider. The rider is responsible at any time of the Rally for the technical conformity of his motorcycle. I hope the exact details of what rule was broken and how comes out, without knowing that, it is hard to judge.
