I think the IBA considers the I-20 E2E a gold level ride and those require completing a ride in less time.

I rode I-20 E2E a few months back. It was a nice ride.

30 hours just seemed like a strange time figure, seeing as how a BB1500 is either 36 or 24 hours. The I-20 E2E seems to split the difference. I was curious about the official rationale.

That makes a certain amount of sense.

636 miles of the route is in Texas (the only state in the route with a speed limit over 70). Assuming zero delays and gas stops, it'd take 7.95 hours at 80 mph or 9.1 hours at 70 mph, so only a little over an hour difference.

I suppose that ultimately it doesn't matter, since I'll do it in the prescribed time frame anyway. I was just curious about the reasoning behind the time difference.
