I crewed for a 24hr offroad moto endurance race recently and I do know that when you get tired enough you can sleep through anything.
Itīs a matter of being awake long enough, then everywhere looks fine. Even a MRE can be the spot.

In another note regarding a video of a drone in the Pre-event thread:

How long before F5 will make an effort to attach a drone for each "picked" riders of the day. 2015-16-17?
Attach it to the Iritrack signal and film them as they haul the mail. THAT would be the batcaves knees bees...I know in a seriuosly way te battery will turn upside Down before theyīve ridden 30min, but one day this could be possible.

How many different viewers are we in these threads? I mean ADVīrs.
I think in these types of sport the drones will have a great succes and make it more watch-worthy than only us crazy F5ivers. Think if you could have an splitscreen with the 2-3 top riders with GPS data on screen this would be the shit, i would never get any sleep.
