I don't think so. An event maybe - competition, no. The essence
?of a competition is that there is a winner and
?at least one other competitor. 
If you give awards at the end of the year to some people not others based on 
the number of miles recorded as completed, then technically yes, even 
"completion only" rides are a competition according to this defintion.? And 
yes, a competition against other competitors, not just yourself.

Certainly if you offer a BC award as such events (as somebody suggested), then 
according to this defintion it counts as a competition.

If you give an award to those who finish and not to those who don't finish, 
then according to this definition, it counts as a competition.

Whether individual land managers will choose to define competition?this way is 
up to them.
