The ultimate emergency/recovery vehicle could be the SWEEPER! This SWEEPER entry only wants a finisher pin no matter how long it takes! Like #1802! We can all go home knowing that no one is left behind. This gives me great satisfaction, knowing everyone is accounted for. This is where I look at the last five vehicles on the course reported by the various pit/checkpoint/spectators and SWEEPER VEHICLE, as to where they are. This is a most important part of the race, determining the last five vehicles on the cource, that no one is left behind.

Sounds like something us bike racers have had the luxury of in virtually ever race we participate in. Just seems like common sense to me. I've actually ridden sweep a few times and while there's a little work involved with it typically it's also usually a lot of fun.

When you can get a racer back racing, or even just rolling, the satisfaction is well worth any work expended.
