Firstly, I enjoyed the race. Well organised, nice tough climbs. Nice race. However, I had a lot of cheaters starting in my group using other peoples PPA boards. Obviously as a PPA member you are eligible for both a mtb and road cycling numbers. What is becoming clear to me is that a certain group of people who only attend the road races, are giving their mtb boards to friends to ride with. I did the shorter route with my girlfriend. There were guys riding with A and B seedings who held up everyone as they walked up hills and sandy sections. They were so slow. What is the PPA view on this? Sorry for the rant, we work hard to get a seeding and start in front of the less skilled people for a reason.
