I would urge all competitors to check the signature and time on your timecard at every checkpoint, I know that you are in a rush and need to get going, but the rules state that the checking of the record your responsibility, if there is nothing in the box or it is incorrect it is your responsibility, there is nothing you can do about it....unless perhaps you have a special relationship with Orga.

It has happened to me twice, once they missed a secret check and I was penalised four hours, the other time they stated that I did not make any of the checks for the whole day! For both I had to submit official protests, both were upheld and the reason given: "Clerical Error". I did not get the benefit of "Seeding" to the second row I had to start towards the back of the field for the following days whilst the protest was being checked. This happened in subsequent years, both whilst running in the top 10 of the events.

I wonder how many errors go unchecked by riders who are not sure if they made that check or not...many could be far higher up the results, but heh they may never know. The antiquated system used by the Orga is problematic, and when you invest so much time and money to participate, amateur or not, the recording of results should be accurate and fair to all. This is one of the main reasons I did not return this year.

I must state that the Tuareg is a fantastic event, at an excellent cost but, for me, there needs to be a better timing/results system in place for it to be fair. GPS routes should not be distributed before the event.
Can't agree more!

There is about half a dozen protests everyday and that's only for the riders who bother with it. I think that they are trying their best but they need better (but cheap) technology that's readily available nowadays.

Friday, March 15, 2013 12:54 PM -- iPhone update from Mike Krynock (#1 37)

But on the other hand I made a lot of good friends and great people.
Had fun, suffered and rode amazing terrain in another crazy country.
And how often in life do you meet and hang out with exclusively great people and no asshole for 10 days straight.
Fun fun heading home tomorrow.

==================
Net-Net: It sounds like Mikey is coming with a smile on his face. :^)

Cheers! E-Ticket

Not happy to hear of Timing SNAFUs, especially for the price of the entry fee!

Congrats to Ned and everybody who finished, not to mention my friend Timi, not bad for her first African Race

FINAL RESULTS

And some vids of days 6 & 7:
