I wouldn't be caught dead in those jumper suits, Michael! Lol. That was the French and Italian thing to do!
Acerbis America was run by Franco's right-hand-man, Bill Berroth (Motonation) who did much of the race marketing along with Casey Folks.
The way the race was handled in many BLM and Forest locations was by helicopter and a PA system telling visitors that a race was in progress and not to move.
And BigBearJoe's comment about sparkling water is correct. I was dying of heat stroke in my last 30 miles of the race and a doctor's helicopter was landing to give riders the bubbly water from exhaustion. I just about spit it out but damn I was dying of thirst in that 120 degree Mesquite, NV heat! lol
