The 2017 GS Giant: Boring stuff you need to read
This is simple and there are very few rules.Rule #1 - Don't take anything too seriously
The primary idea is to have fun. This is neither a race nor a cutthroat competition. The GS Giant is all about enjoying the community of riders who dare to brave seemingly random and mostly unexpected turns of events that are the makings of adventure.
In other words, backtracking 20 miles from nowhere because there’s a gate, the creek’s too deep to cross or a landslide took out the road is called “adventure.” Deal with it. Shoot pictures and tell everyone a good story.
And in even other words, you don’t have to compete to have fun. You can enjoy the roads, the food, the beer, the friends and the track without worrying about points.
Rule #2 - The fewer rules the better
Know your limits and respect them. Your fellow riders expect this of you.
