RE: Indian Pacific Wheel Race

Self Supported adds a real extra degree of difficulty.

Supported riders can STOP and sleep in the team van or simply relax, if that's the right word, for a meal. I really doubt anyone in any of these 'single stage' races sleeps more than 3 hours at a whack.
I couldn't imagine carrying a front Panier full of camp gear as well. I'd hope the rules made allowances for WATER for the riders. A big barrel of it every 100km or so for the 'duration'.
Water goes 1000gm per liter or about 8.3lb per gallon and you DO need at least a gallon per day for such exertions. In hot weather? ADD water until soaked.
Too much is never enough
