I received an email saying that we should bring lights, and not wear shoes with cleats. How seriously do you guys think these instructions will be enforced? If a podium contender rocks up with tekkies and a light he might be upset if organisers let others ride with cleats and no light. I rode without a light and with cleats two years ago and I survived. I entered single speed category with the aim to race it. But they have given me a start time of 8:20. I envisage bottlenecks and a generally unpleasant race, so I'm going to change to sub-vet category. These little things contribute to the reason JUMA has struggled to get entries. And more serious things, such as marshals fast asleep as the lead bunch came past two years' ago. Apparently they were dropped off at their posts around midnight so it's no surprise they succumbed to sleep.
