I think you have hit the nail on the head.... Do you really want to promote an event with THIS IS HARD or "Off the Road by 8pm" then the only people that will enter will be the ones that KNOW they can do it. I just wanted the same opportunity as the others that got to finish, NOT 1 min more. I have always maintained that pre the March 10 BV email, I and many others thought 7.45pm was the bottom of falls cut off and that support would be removed. I had plenty of cold weather gear, three tubes, and puncture kit, two high powered front lights THREE rear lights. This was heaps compared to the crap I saw finish. One rear light I saw on a bike that finished was a pissy, tiny, single LED. now that was a joke and a safety hazard.
I have heard that a person that worked on a training guide for 3PC gave it to BV and they spat the first version back saying "that's too hard" so they reluctantly cut it down and then told BV this is the absolute minimum that someone needs to do to finish 3PC. Marketing driven dollars all the way I would say.
For the record, to others on this trail, I don't have a problem with Vic Pol... never said I did. And in regards to ACE 200 Vs ACE 250 the last time I checked there were no 11-14% sections on the front of falls or buffalo..much easier than Hotham and the BOF.
