The course has been marked. GPX files have been tested. Multiple people have been out testing the files on-course. One guy volunteered to take the 2022 file and ride it beginning to end. He rode the whole course last weekend with no signs – just gps (and he’s not a local).
A lot of people bust their butts to sign the course every year – and they do a damn good job of it. Do people make mistakes? Yea. Do signs fall down? Yes. Do people pull them down? You bet. GPS can save you and your race if you know how to use it – and you should know how to use it because you had a year to learn. This is a long way of saying there are no excuses for going off course and getting lost.
You have the tools you need to finish.
