Re: [RC] 108 Riders are listed as starters for the 2008 Shk Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum Endurance Cup - John Teeter

I think a 25% completion rate might be expected. The ONLY thing to slow this race down is the "Certificate of Capability" (CoC) rule which relates to metabolic pulls (i.e. 2 metabolic pulls within the next 8 months and you loose your CoC - one invasive treatment (within 6 months) and you loose your CoC.

The CoC time (12km/hr) is the cut-off time for each gate too. I wonder if the Europeans were lured there to put their CoCs at risk? (while the locals all are riding their non-CoC horses:) -- just a conspiracy theory.

I guess it was 26 foreign riders that were invited, not 26 total riders.

The payout through 25th place looks to be less like a "to finish is to
win" type of prize....although I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out
to be the case.

Raise of hands.

How many people thing there WILL be 25 finishers at this ride?  Me?
I'll give even odds to anybody who bets either way.
