So..any hubber's dots we should be watching next week?

 

The 1,5 Bitcoin prize money suddenly doesn't look to shabby!

Closing in on a half million ronds.

 

Half a bar today, 10bar tomorrow, 30c friday and at the end of the day nothing but 0's and 1's in a computer that your bank likely won't accept. . . . . . .

 

Any ideas what these events are doing to get around curfews?

We were issued special permits for 36one a couple of weeks ago, they will probably have the same in place.

On the Munga Facebook page they said riders will be issued with permits.

 

While the Munga Grit rules had this: "Where two riders cross the line at the same time and be eligible for a prize, the race director will decide the method to determine in which order the riders place.", the Munga rules don't have anything about that.  Although the Munga rules still have the prize money values based on November 2019 prices, so I don't think they have been updated on the site yet, but updated rules may have been sent to competitors.

Yes, Bainskloof is closed for all traffic, including cyclists, due to roadworks(until 2022), so they are riding an extra 40km around the mountain to get to the finish line at Doolhof.

but cuts out the pass...probably only an extra 20km the nuwekloof pass route

interesting update, gives more leeway to the RD to apply things subjectively. hasn't really stopped them in the past from picking and choosing what to enforce.

 

 

INTRODUCTION AND THE DPA

These rules serve as a guidleine for both riders and the Race Director and Commissaire. For the riders, they should use these rules to develop a good understanding of the criteria through which fairness is applied. For the Race Director and Commissaire, these rules will inform and guide their thinking into making a fair decision when dealing with rule infringes and contraventions. The Race Director will use a Dual Principle Approach (DPA) in deciding what is a fair decision. The two principles in the DPA are the letter of the law and the spirit or motivation behind the contravention. The following describes what these two principles are about:
1. The letter of the law: This is the actual rules document that break down the various rules and contructs and consequent penalties. So what does the rule specifically say and what is its intention?
2. The spirit or motivation of the offence: This means what was motivating the individual when he broke a rule? Was it a complete accident, or was he intentionally trying to obtain an unfair advantage?
In using the DPA, the Race Director will look at both aspects. Obvioulsy the first will be easy to determine as the rules document lays out the law so to speak. The second one is harder to determine but the Race Director, along with the Commissaire and any other person that the Race Director deems relevant in the specific case, will assess what motivated the rider when he broke a rule. Using both principles, the Race Director will then make a call whether the infraction has been unfair to other competitors or not, and whether the rider in question has gained an advantage. The ultimate objective is to make a fair decision. The rules are subservient to the principle of fairness. In addition, the Munga is a semi-supported race and as such, there are some unique elements to the Race. This means the parameters and rules need to be clearly defined, appreciated and understood by all riders. It is the rider’s responsibility to make sure he is familiar with and understands all of the Rules and the implications thereof, as well as the DPA. If a rider is unclear about any of the Rules, the onus is on the rider to contact the Race organizer and seek clarity.

Guy Jennings (a multiple top 10 Munga finisher) is riding again this year, but when he gets to the finish line he's turning around straight away and riding back to the start.  All to raise funds towards building a pump track for disadvantaged kids through #pumpforpeace.
