Anybody aware of a top rider caught cheating?
Look, it means nothing to me. I am in no way involved with enduro. But after speaking to more than one player involved, they are disgusted.Here is some logic that i know is not favored on 101
Bull, reading between the lines here - its obvious if the unnamed rider blatantly cut the track then surely he would have been DQ'd or penalized. Obviously there was enough evidence (GPS Proof) that he did not gain an advantage hence the steward or jury overturned the ruling. This is a mountain out of a molehill. If Yamaha or the unofficial which can only be the Brian Capper racing team where not happy with the ruling they have just as much right to put in an appeal. To just pack up and leave is actually quite sad.
LIST OF PENALTIES The following penalties can be applied without a hearing. a) POINTS
i) Missing one route check or time check:- 3600 points
ii) Early arrival at time check, i.e. for each minute early arrival, before the AA:-60 points
iii) Late arrival at a time check, i.e. every full minute after the AA:-60 points
iv) Deviating off the route to gain an advantage i.e. turning inside double markers, turning inside marking stakes or bunting, being further than 20 metres away from a single marker. (1st offence):- 600 points
This is a very badly written rule and is too vague - So here is the catch, what if you do take a shortcut but do not gain an advantage?” Should you still be penalised, riders or team managers who know the rules often use them to their advantage.
Yes he should be penalized for deviating but according to the rules if he did not gain an advantage then should not. You decide??
