REXY 2022 Must Read Riders Manual

2022 Rexy and Moe and little t Riders Manual
A “Must Read”
Welcome
Rexy, Queen of the Desert, was created in the spirit of adventure, self-discovery, competition, and challenge, with yourself as much or more than with fellow riders, doing so across an incredibly rugged, beautiful, and unique desert region of western Colorado and eastern Utah. We call this region home and welcome all of you to join us on this adventure through our backyard.
With distances of 50, 100 and 200 miles, we’ve done what we can to provide challenging options for riders looking to ride medium, far and very far! Regardless of the option selected, we anticipate almost all of you will find this challenge more difficult than expected. We hope for you, ultimately the challenge, and overcoming it, is the point. For this reason, we ask you to take your preparation seriously. Your physical fitness, mental preparedness, equipment, nutrition plan, navigation systems, and clothing choices should all be dialed in and ready for race day.
On our end, we are working hard to keep you safe, making it fun and fine-tuning each course to reward you with a beautiful adventure. Below is information that applies to the entire event. Please keep in mind we reserve the right to change the rules, courses, routes, and guidelines or cancel the event at any time before or during the event to keep you safe.
 
Working together
In the desert we all rely upon one another, It is desolate out there. You get stuck, and someone comes along and pulls you out. Out of gas – same thing. Rexy lives with this same spirit – While this is technically a race, for most of you it will be an odyssey. Be there for one another. And if you need beta, have support to offer or need a ride to the start of the 50 (or back to Moab or Cisco afterward) team up. We’ve created a Facebook Group to help you connect with one another in advance. Find it here
 
 
Weather
As of this writing, the course conditions are ideal. Recent, regular rain has reduced the sand, firmed the dirt and made the route much smoother than usual. There are a few (as compared to last years hundreds) rain ruts in the bottom of several drainages and down a few of the steep downhill sections – use caution and take any danger signs seriously.
The weather is almost always great here. Early October especially is generally ideal for riding. However, when it isn’t great, it can be bad. Rain is a blessing here and always needed. A little rain makes riding incredible, with no dust, firm sand, and excellent traction. A lot of rain, and it is game over. Period. If it rains significantly, the roads are impassable. At this time the forecast looks great!
 
Traffic This event takes place on 100% open, public roads! Road rules and laws must be followed. Zero tolerance from us in this situation. You will be disqualified if we find you running stop signs, crossing yellow lines, etc.
Once in the desert, it is remote, and you may feel all alone. Trust us; there could be a big Mac truck hauling ass right at you coming over that hill or around that corner. STAY ON THE RIGHT ALWAYS!
 
Race numbers, tracking, and timing
Your race plate number must be mounted on the front of your bike and visible at all times. Your number needs to be logged in at each aid station. Please, for us to keep track of you, let your crew, family, and friends stay updated on your progress; take 10 seconds at each aid station to pull in, get your number logged and head out.
Each aid station will update our timing HQ at 30-minute intervals with your rider number and the time you passed through each aid station. This data will then be updated to the semi-live tracking results allowing your fans and family to follow along. The better you are at helping us ensure we’ve collected your information at each aid station, the more accurately we can post your progress.
We will provide you with the website for this tracking function race week.
 
Lights
All riders, in the 200 and 100, must have a functional and ON lighting system after 6:30 pm. No rider will be allowed to leave any aid station after 5 pm without lights attached and ready to go. Period.
 
Navigation/Signage
ALL riders are required to carry and use GPS navigation for this event. Either a GPS-enabled computer or a smartphone. Our maps are created in Ride With GPS, and this app works very well on your Phone if you choose not to use a bike computer. If relying on your Phone, please carry an additional power supply. GPS navigation consumes significant battery. You do not want to be without navigation or your Phone in case of an emergency!
Final and official GPS files are included below. The course will be marked regularly and at major intersections. Look for large hot pink arrows at significant junctions and smaller red arrows at minor junctions. Double X’s XX means the wrong way. Any Caution or Danger sign is to be taken seriously! This signage will be BACK UP to your navigation. We cannot guarantee those course markings will remain in place, as they could be interfered with by cows or desert dwellers.

Do not use previously posted maps as changes could be made. We reserve the right to change, adjust, amend any course due to weather, safety, or environmental concerns at any point before or during the event.
 
Aid stations
Gravel is about adventure and self-reliance. In the spirit of this, many gravel events don’t provide aid stations. That’s cool, and we ride many of those events. But we want to add this support so you can focus less on what to carry and more on the views. Skratch Labs provide primary race nutrition bars, crispy cakes, and hydration electrolytes. Additionally, you can expect pickles, salty options (various chips), sweet options (various cookies), bananas, and Pepsi.
Aid stations will be at the following mileage.
Rexy #1 Thompson Springs Desert Moon Hotel Full aid – Mile 55.
Rexy #2 Cisco Mile 100

*** Drop bags will be taken to the finish line, and while we will do what we can to make a trip or two Saturday evening/night, likely, they will not make it to the finish line until early Sunday morning.
 
Awards
Custom, hand-painted “overall” awards will be provided to the overall woman and man in each solo division and overall team open and women in Rexy and Moe. All distances will have age-group awards for women and men in each 10 yr age bracket, such as 20-29, 30-39, etc. The two team divisions will have 1st, 2nd,and 3rd place awards and Tandem and SS will have 1st, 2nd,and 3rd place awards. All finishers will receive an official survivors award. We anticipate presenting survivor awards as you finish.

1. The event organizers, promoters, staff, volunteers, and sponsors, including but not limited to anyone having anything to do with this event, are not responsible for your safety or well-being; please commit to safe riding. You are responsible for yourself. If you have an emergency, call 911 from your cell phone.
2. This event is a non-stop bicycling marathon event that will require participants to travel on paved, gravel, and dirt public roads. Participants must carry all necessary food, water, and equipment to make it from aid station to aid station.
3. Each participant is solely responsible for himself/herself, themselves including any accidents in which he or she may be involved. No responsibility can be accepted for participants becoming lost, stranded, or injured.
4. Participants must obey all city, county, state & federal laws and “Rules of the Road.” Participants must watch and yield to traffic as the roads used on this course are open to public traffic. Commit to safe riding and make wise decisions.
5. Participants must use the centerline rule. On the pavement, there is a centerline, stay to the right of the centerline. On gravel, there is no centerline, stay to the right as if there were a centerline. Do not ride in the opposite lane; this is especially dangerous on hills or corners where you cannot see oncoming traffic.
6. Participants must wear an ANSI-approved helmet while operating their bicycle. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
7. All participants must have a red taillight for the duration of the event. 200 mile Riders will not be allowed to start the event without proper front, and rear lighting mounted and on at the start. No rider will be permitted on course past 6:30 pm without rear AND front lights, and doing so will be grounds for disqualification.

10. The primary route must be followed at all times. No shortcuts or alternate routes are permitted. Failure to abide by this, including accidental route deviation, will result in disqualification. (The course may be altered by the promoters in the event of inclement weather or other unforeseeable circumstance. Should this occur, participants will be sufficiently advised at a checkpoint).
11. Participants must remain within the primary boundaries of the roadway at all times. If fences or ditches border the road, riders must stay between them. If the route is in open range, remain on the roadway. Leaving the roadway or climbing over a fence is considered shortcutting the course and will result in disqualification.
12. If you exit the course for food, supplies, or any other reason, you must re-enter the course at the same spot at which you left. If you get lost, you must backtrack to the point you left the course, and failure to do so will result in disqualification.
13. Participants may not advance along the route by any means other than by bicycle or foot. All other means of advancement, including towing, tethering, or hitching rides, are prohibited and will result in disqualification.

Participants may receive assistance from any unplanned source that would be available to any other racer in the competition (for example, stores, bike shops, faucets on the side of a building). Participants may receive assistance from the general public, defined as unplanned assistance from people who have no connection or affiliation with the race or a competitor in the race and that is freely & equally offered to all participants from a fixed, non-movable location (for example, assistance in the form of mechanical help, food, water, bike parts would all be acceptable). Participants MAY NOT receive outside assistance from spectators, team managers, or friends viewing the event, from event staff, or from support persons on the course who have planned to assist teams. Any violation will result in disqualification.
20. Participants may be assisted by motorized transport in an emergency, mechanical failure, or other unforeseeable problem. By accepting such motorized transportation, you will be automatically disqualified from the event.

27. Support Crews, family, or friends are NOT allowed on any portion of the course (except the 4.5 miles of paved road from Thompson Springs to Sego Canyon rock art for viewing this historic area). Except to pick up a rider who is abandoning the event, if a support crew vehicle is spotted on course for any other reason, their rider will be disqualified from the event. Providing support to a rider while on course violates the self-sufficiency spirit of this event and is unfair to other participants.

IF you find yourself in the pit of despair, try this…. Look up. Take a big breath of this fresh, clean air. Relax those shoulders and then… Look around you, all around. Take it in—the blue in the big open sky, the purple hues tucked in the layers of the hills, the stunning colors one upon the other. The cliffs, stacked like books as far as you can see. Once that all settles in, remind yourself of this. You are healthy, alive, on your bike riding through the desert, and you are strong enough to get it done. Repeat often and enjoy the journey.

Teams Playbook
How it works
Howdy Rexy Teams! Wow, can you feel it? You are about to set off on an EPIC adventure!
The strategy behind our Teams division is to allow a group of riders to share the Rexy 200-mile or Moe 100 mile route between friends. The tactics for the Teams are up to the individual team members. The goal for the Teams is to have a blast and embrace the journey collectively.
All Teams and individual team riders must also review and follow the events’ general rules.
Additional rules and procedures for Teams Rider
  • Teams may be 2, 3, or 4 riders.
  • Regardless of the number of riders per team, all teams fall into one of two divisions: Women-only team consisting of only female members, and open any team not comprised of all women.
  • No team may use a rider not included in their registration roster. (No substitutes)
  • Teams may change riders ONLY at any of the five official aid stations, no exchanges anywhere else on the course.
  • Teams are not required to change riders at any specific aid station. (A rider may ride farther than aid station to aid station.)
  • Teams may choose to have any member of their team ride any section of the course.
  • Rider exchange
  • Each team member will receive a sequential number plate (IE – Team “Eat Dino’s for Lunch 51, 52, 53, 54) . When riders “exchange” at an official aid station, please let an aid station official know which race number is stopping and which is continuing. (IE -“#51 is done and #53 is continuing)
  • When an exchange happens, the team must confirm the exchange with an official at the aid station. (except at the “water drop only aid station, which is unmanned but allows exchanges – This is stop #1 on the 100-mile route and stop #3 on the 200) This official will log the exchange and the time of the exchange.
Awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in each of the two divisions (Women and Open) based on the cumulative time taken to complete the entire course.
Crew and support aid station locations and Maps
Below are google map links from the starting line in Fruita to each aid station location as well as directions from each aid station to the next. If your map link provides multiple options do not select any option that would take you onto a dirt road, this would put you on the event course and be grounds for disqualification.

Rexy Crew Guide
Greetings family and friends – Welcome to the only thing harder than riding this event, supporting someone that is. The hurry up and wait can be stressful and long. This guide should help reduce the stress, lighten the load and help you to have fun.
First and foremost – Welcome, we are so glad you’ve joined us. Please know that you are welcome at the start of any of the three events Rexy 200 miler, beginning at Moab Giants, 11 miles north of Moab, Moe 100 miler, beginning downtown Cisco, Ut. And, little – t 50 miler beginning at Prairie Canyon on 4Rd. You are also welcome (and encouraged) to support your rider and any of our aid stations. 5, for Rexy riders, 3 for Moe riders and 1 for little – t riders. And of course, we want to see all of you cheering and celebrating at the finish line! Civic Park, 325 E. Aspen Avenue in Downtown Fruita, Co. The only place you are not welcome is out on the course – for safety and permit purposes crewing on course is against the rules and will cause your rider to be disqualified.
Below you will find map links to all start locations and all aid station locations.
Aid stations are numbered based on the Rexy 200 mile course (with notes on corresponding Moe and t courses) They are as follows.
 
Aid station 1,Rider Mile 54 – Thompson Springs Ut. Desert Moon Hotel
This aid station is a 30 minute drive from the Moab Giants start and 1 hour and 15 minute drive from Fruita.
 
Aid station 2 Rider Mile 100 – Cisco Ut. Buzzards Belly General Store
This is also the starting location for the 100 mile Moe event.
The store is cute and quirky with fun nick knacks and basic snacks, beer, ice and ice cream, but no gas. Please pay them a visit the owner Jean is an awesome supporter. This aid station is about a 45 minute drive from the Moab Start, or Fruita, and a 20 minute drive from aid station 1.
 
Aid station 3 (Moe aid station 1) Rider mile 126 and 26 respectively. Bryson Canyon Rd.
This aid station is an unmanned and WATER ONLY and would be an excellent support station for 200 mile riders. It is in the middle of beautiful nowhere.
This aid station is about 35 minutes for Cisco, 45 minutes from Fruita and 1 hour 30 minutes from the start.
 
Aid station 4 (Moe aid station 2) Rider mile 144 and 44 respectively. 2rd.
This aid station involves about 1 mile of good gravel road and is also in the middle of nowhere with big views.
This aid station is about an hour from Cisco, 35 minutes from Fruita and 25 minutes from aid 3.
 
Aid station 5 (Moe aid station 3, little – t aid station 1) Rider mile 175, 75 and 25 respectively.
This aid station is just off the busy highway 139 – Riders ride north on this highway. PLEASE park South (before) the aid station and use caution with the mix of rider and car traffic.
This is the final aid station for all riders – love, hugs, cheers (possibly warm clothes and lights) before they set off on the final leg.
This aid station is about 30 minutes from Fruita and 30 minutes from aid 4.
 
Tips and tricks for good crewing.
· Be supportive of all riders and respectful of the aid station workers
· Know in advance if your rider has a drop bag at an aid station. If they do, find it and have it ready for them, very importantly – take it with you when your rider is done so they have it at the next aid station or the finish.
· Pitch in – You are likely there for a while, waiting for your rider – Ask the team how you might help.
· Bring extra clothing, tubes, water bottles, back up lights and any other items your rider likely won’t need but might.
· Be willing to help a stranded rider. Someone could be waiting for a lift back to Fruita or need a little TLC to motivated to keep moving.
· Bells and whistles – really, bring noise makers and lots of smiles and cheering!
