A cop out you say... absolutely!
I realize, of the 70 signed up 50 will show. The winners are going to be the finishers. Really the winners are the participants, even the bikes or bodies that break in the first few days. Everyboy involved in this hair brained scheme is a champ. I have learned a lot about these teens machines & have come to realize... the lying, cheating, & brotherhood are going to be the most valuable part of this race, not the silly trophy!
