Support Crews 

Allowed but not required. May only give support at fueling stations. Support crews will be required to use specified non-race routes to fueling stations . Although we recommend having a support crew  ,we do not believe that they will provide a distinct advantage. Support crews may greet racers at the feed station by Lincoln Park.

The combination of riding with your head up, haveing a handlebar readable map and course marking arrows, may be sufficient for successful navagation. Maps stuffed in back pocket have low value.
