Doesn't quite stack up Chris as I think both JBB and Quinn were registered before JBB broke down in the Desert Challenge in Abu Dhabi, in fact the Qatar entry closed before the ADDC started.

But a lot of money for a training ride in an event that is noted for difficult navigation due to the terrain
