    I don't know anything about it, but it was, indeed, a cooling vest. Ira

    2019 IBR Details

    Totally agree. Ultimately, it is a competition against ones' self. No one wants to give anything less than everything they're got. It can be one of those life-defining moments that tells you exactly what you are made of without any bullshit (if you pardon my French). It's put up or shut up...

    2019 IBR Details

    Note that we run every checkpoint the same way - penalty points begin to accrue from the time the checkpoint opens until the time it closes, but we have scorers available a few hours before the checkpoint opens. Traditionally, the penalty points increase every leg. So they can be significant...

    You're welcome. And thanks. I'm here in Kennewick. Weather is perfect, but a little windy at the moment. Five hours on regional jets to get here is its' own form of brutality. But of course, nothing compared to what a bunch of crazed motorcyclists have faced heading this way. :) Just to...

    First, using the Forum for such questions is not the appropriate place. If you need to contact me, please drop me a Forum PM or an email to ira@ironbutt.com. Thanks. Because of the very large volume of mail we receive, I'm afraid we can't provide status. But it can take a year or longer for...

    That's not exactly correct. As the schedule says, "Penalty points accrue at 8:00:01am Scoring opens at 5am". What is doesn't say is that the finish window is from 8am to 10am (the rally started at 10am and ends at 10am). What this means is that we will have staff available to score riders...

    Productivity

    I know how strong the impulse is to see the competitors on the road. But remember - it may be a short ten minutes to you, but in this event every minute counts. The other problem is that riders get into a routine when they get off the bike. Someone coming over is nice, but it can break their...

    Aussies @ the Iron Butt Rally 2019

    I talked with Dan for a few minutes this morning. He said that all the problems caused him to lose the focus necessary to successfully ride the rally, so he decided to withdraw. A really tough decision. Ira
