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.

Required

Participants are encouraged to mount map to handlebars so that map is readable while riding. The combination of riding with your head up, having a handlebar readable map and course marking arrows, should be sufficient for successful navigation. Maps stuffed in back pocket have low value.
