Speaking of the "HH"H, what's up with the ultra-early leaving rally
riders? I know it's common practice to start a few miles up the road
to get in front of some of the huge crowd, but I'm talking way up the
road. Way, way up. We finished in less than four hours and we were
still passing a few people over fifty miles into it. Judging by their
speed, they must have left town somewhere around three in the morning.
What the hell? Is this fun for people? Why would you pay someone to do
a ride before the support crews are even awake?
It seems like there is some kind of weird common theme amongst the early
birds: I noticed that the further up the road we were, the less likely
that rally riders were to pull over for us. One clueless group of
jokers rode through our feed zone at about ten mph, on the right hand
side next to the handups, just as we were coming through. I'm not
bitching, I got my feed and all's well that ends well I say, but I
really am curious to hear the comments of those of you who do ride a lot
of rallys. Are these people otherwise normal, off the bike?
