Once the race starts many teams implement a leap frog style support system for their riders. Essentially the support vehicle will drive past the rider 10 miles or so, wait for them with water/food. Once the rider passes the support vehicle will pass them again by another 10 miles and wait again. We just ask that you exercise caution and respect on passing cyclists, where you park, and not holding up traffic. The roads will not be closed, so you’ll be sharing the road with other drivers. Please be careful.
Have your camera handy. There are incredible views you’ll want to capture, along with unflattering pictures you’ll want to save for blackmailing your friends.
There are gas stations and grocery stores along the way. Prices are a little higher, but you’ll have access to items you should need to stay nourished. There is one stretch between Blanding and Hanksville (120 miles) where there are NO services. Be prepared with plenty of water for your rider and a full tank of gas.
In Torrey there is a great Mexican restaurant named La Cueva (located at Exchange 5). Each year we arrange with the owner of the restaurant to stay open late so that all of the teams can have dinner there if they desire. Most teams show up to Exchange 5 between 7:30 pm and midnight. We recommend the milanesa!
Make sure you have a plan/rotation on how you and you’re team will get sleep and rest. Doing so will make your ride a bit more pleasant.
Please note this ride is not supported, so you are responsible for your food and drink between Moab and St. George. Some exchange sponsors may have food and drink for you, but do not count on this.
