BITD doesn't publish the course map until one week before the race. Does anyone know if the course will be run backwards like last year?

How many miles per lap is expected? Thanks
116 miles. And judging by the mileage at the pits and road crossings, the course will run the same direction as last year.

Does anyone know if the area behind Jean will be roped off on Friday? Or any nearby ohv areas if not? I'm meeting someone out there who is interested in our prerunner but they asked to drive it first. Gonna drag it out for them, but just need somewhere to get a little dirty for them.

Just to clarify also:

While the BLM land closure is the entire area for Friday, the course is off limits completely 7 days prior to the day of the race as per all Best in the Desert events to all competitors, or teams. The BITD staff will be out there everyday getting everything ready and every single year someone goes out and decides to "test" after the course is marked. Please all competitors, dont throw your race away before you take the green flag.

I'm not sure if anyone answered your question or not, but if the area is closed you can stage on the other side of the Jean exit and have your guy go for a test ride. You can actually run from the gas station down to pioneer saloon. That side isn't as good as where all the races are on the east side but you can still get what you need done.

Basically turn left at the Jean exit instead of going right and heading down LV Blvd S.
