[RC] Karen's ? on Elevator sanctioning of BigHorn - Cindy Collins

Hi, Karen.  Would LOVE to see you at BH...bring the camera!  I am assuming
that it will work like any elevator ride.  You can enter at one distance
and can elevate once for completion only.  Here's what the rule says:

1.2 Endurance rides which are sanctioned for more than one distance (such
as a 50 and a 100 held over the same course at the same time) have the
option of allowing riders to ?elevate? from one ride into the other,
subject to the following restrictions: The rider may only elevate from a
shorter distance into a longer distance; the rider may elevate only once;
upon elevating, the rider is no longer considered to be a starter or a
finisher in the shorter ride; and the rules on reduced Bonus Points for
rides with fewer than eleven starters apply. 1.2.1 Elevator rides must be
indicated on the sanction application and advertised as such. 1.2.2 The
rider must state which mileage he will enter if a multiple mileage ride;
e.g., 50 mile, 100 mile or 150 mile. 1.2.3 A rider who elevates is
eligible for completion only. 1.2.4 If the starting times are not the
same, elevating riders must have the time limits of Rule 5 applied to
their original ride?s starting time.

I'm sure that Jeanette and Tom decided to try the elevator concept to see
if they couldn't entice a few more riders to go past 50 miles.  Hope it
works.  CC
