The racers mentioned that the spotters and the people at the check points were always giving them updates through out the race.
I bet they had heard they were disqualified from at least some one. These guys are there for the challenge and want to put in a good finish (even if its not official). And its probably not smart to quit based on what a spotter said. Getting the "official" news at the end, is a devastating blow, weather you expected it or not.
They get the cake, just not the icing on top. If only all the pro athletes had that kind of integrity and loved their sport more than money.
Any bike can be taken off road. The question is; How much fun did you have doing it?
