"... Adventure Racers are by nature very forgiving customers. They know races are difficult to stage and require a lot of hard work by the organising team and the good will of many volunteers. As adventure racers they know things can, and will, go wrong, and they get on and cope with them, making the best of any situation.
As a result they are reluctant to complain, perhaps also recognising that in such a small sport ‘rocking the boat’ is not good for the bigger picture. (There have been numerous cases of top teams never being paid prize money by major races as well, and they have never spoken out.)..."
