Think I want to do this event, but am I reading it correctly, $300 to enter?
And where is the best place to stay, where does everyone hang out?

Gas stops

please excuse my noob question.

Are the gas stops seperate locations from the service area? Or do the stages have a different starting line but all finish at the same service/gas finish line?

I know lots of people say "There's no such thing as a stupid question" but there absolutely are questions where there answer is "no" or "you can't". Some of these questions, like that one, are actual questions that we get asked over and over through the years.

The gas stops can be anywhere you need them while you're on a 'transit' (traveling between timed race stages). If you're transiting between timed stages and you see a gas station, pop in for a splash and maybe a doof if you need one and have enough time. Just don't miss your start time at the next timed section. You'll know what time you need to be at the next timed stage (as well as how far it is) by looking at your card and doing the math.

Like this; ride down some roads at legal speeds to a predetermined location where a timed race stage will take place. Wait at said place for your turn to start. Ride with your hair on fire till you cross the end of the timed stage. Ride down some roads at legal speeds to the next predetermined location where the next timed stage will take place. And the cycle repeats itself over and over.

Barring that, you'll get your gas (and your doof) during the service period around mid day from your pit crew at the bivouac.

But always remember:

1 minute late at the end of a transit = 10 second penalty
1 minute early = 1 minute penalty

Not that this should be an issue...but you can get gas from a gas station on the route and you can get gas from any of your fellow competitors. However getting fuel brought to you by a crew member who is not racing is not allowed by the rules.

As I was reminded, the speed limit on unpaved roads in NJ is 25mph. At Atsion you also share the trails with hikers and horses. But it's great to get used to sandy stuff...

I don't know what you're racing....I race ( albeit slowly) a G450X. I carry MSR fuel bottles secured to the rear fender. I have needed to use the supplemental fuel at both Sandblast and West Virginia.

Yes, but the gas tank on that bike is, what, 10 ounces? Maybe 12?

I will be on my F8GS which has a 4.2 g tank, but I prefer racing 15-20 lbs lighter by carrying less fuel.
