RE: ROC sanctioning
A bit of diversity from your statement regarding
sanctioning. The procedural route is from the AERC to the
USA/E to the FEI. The FEI recognizes the USA/E as the
National Federation and the USA/E recognizes the AERC as the
National sanctioning body for the discipline of endurance.
So, back to the ROC, if it wanted FEI sanctioning then ROC
needs AERC first then the USA/E and then it is upped to the
Or so the paper trail is laid out in the several
Now, if this route is circumvented at any one point, then
strong protests should be made. To do less is to acknowledge
that all other rules and regulations are moot when a strong
desire to circumvent them is present.

My comment on ROC sanctioning is that there are no corners
to cut on this for AERC sanctioning.
The date is past and there was no attempt to get AERC
sanctioning. It is certain that there will be no AERC
sanctioning for the ROC.
And at the moment - even lifetime miles are not possible for
Any ride that gets lifetime miles for an AERC member must be
sanctioned by a recognized authority in the country the ride
takes place in. For example - an AERC member riding in the
Australian Quilty and completing would get lifetime miles.
So unless ROC gets sanctioning from another recognized
organization before the ride - AERC members would not get
lifetime miles for completing the ROC.
It sounds like a great ride and I hope every rider who takes
part has a great experience. The ROC has a long tradition
and I hope it continues.
It would have been nice though if AERC members could have it
show up on their records.
