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.

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!
