The tracker is helpful to the rescue and retrieval folks to more easily locate a fallen rider or broke rider if necessary. This course for bikes is single track we have not used before mixed with existing course. I cannot speak to the pit pass cost. However, I do know that if you are in pits you need a wristband. Vehicles not allowed into pits without a pit pass affixed to chase vehicle.Still questions to be answered....
If I'm reading the information correctly this will NOT be like a typical BITD event (entrants are issued pit passes for our trucks and the pit people sign the BITD waiver and get a wristband to be allowed/covered in the pits).
It sounds like everyone entering the pits needs to purchase a per-person pit pass ?? Entrants need to spend more $ to get thier truck/s and people into the pits?
@mxben - It's a non-pre-run course so finding shorter lines isn't so easy. I doubt the "tracker" is to limit cutting.
@pgarfinkle - Is that fact, that the tracker is for online public to follow? So we'd be paying $200 to help promote the event? Odd...
IMO a course with pits approx 25-30 miles apart isn't "remote" and tracker for safety isn't needed. What exactly does the YB tracker do? Does it have functions like pass alert or SOS like a Stella does? (i do not think so)
