I can't believe Jarvis missed the check point, just an amazing rider.
Didn't they say Birch and Tady (is that his name? The multi time winner) were saving themselfs for Romaniacs?

I thought they would do both, but I don't know any facts...

I thought Tady was doing an EnduroCross here in the states..KTM must really want that title not to have the golden boy back in Austria doing erzberg.

Birch was on the mic. Actually quite cool to get his perspective on the race.
He did say he is on for the Romaniacs this coming weekend

I thought Birch did a brilliant job as a commentator...

He didn't even sound to much like a Kiwi

That would suck. Considering the difficulty of this event those two should at least be credited with " tied for last".

Graham Jarvis' total look of incomprehension when he first got the news at the finish (although the organiser kindly* let him complete the whole course before telling him?... after he apparently "missed" the checkpoint relatively early in proceedings?) was something quite unique to watch. Then the way he took it (resigned to the fact almost)... Shit what a champion/gentleman of the human race (either that or he could not fathom it was really happening?). I'm sure the majority of people in that situation had of thrown a ballistic tantrum of some sort. Jarvis just seemed to take it in stride. Kudos.

*This is the part that I wondered about? Although Jarvis "missed" a checkpoint early on the course... it seems the organiser allowed the situation where he continued to ride the entire route (in the belief he was winning), instead of informing him of the "miss" at the first opportunity? Why? To make a better story/footage and keep some intrigue in the video/for the sponsors? It may well be that had Jarvis been informed at an appropriate point in time, he could have returned to the miss check, or perhaps he would have pulled out (if no chance of victory), or choose to continue and prove a point (as was ultimately the case).

As it turned out, he rode the whole course, only to have the news dumped on him AFTER approaching the finish line (he never took the checkered flag). In contrast - Johnny Walker (who was running second on the track and eventual winner), was informed of the situation (presumably by one of his "spotters") out on course and continued unflustered... knowing that he DID NOT have to chase down Jarvis. Now that's not a "fair" playing field?

To my mind... the organisers "used" Jarvis to a certain extent... One could say that the "organ grinder" made the monkey dance all day... and then withheld the peanuts at the end?

One can imagine that GJ could very well be a force to be reckoned come Romaniacs time...

I saw Letti cross the line in 3rd. He was also "lost" when he heard. My german is non existant, but the "Only NOW!" didn't need an interperator!

Extremely poor organising!
But as you say, it did create good riding from the best.

The racers mentioned that the spotters and the people at the check points were always giving them updates through out the race.
I bet they had heard they were disqualified from at least some one. These guys are there for the challenge and want to put in a good finish (even if its not official). And its probably not smart to quit based on what a spotter said. Getting the "official" news at the end, is a devastating blow, weather you expected it or not.
They get the cake, just not the icing on top. If only all the pro athletes had that kind of integrity and loved their sport more than money.

I don't think that's the case. From the look on their faces, they really didn't know.
