I had heard of it, and as an IBA member I was interested, so I did some digging into the history of the event. It wasn't pretty.
Lots of charges of lying and deceit, prize money never paid, prize money kept by organizers, fundraising for Native American causes never passed on, conflict of interest, etc., etc.. Then changes of ownership/management, promises to improve the run, promises of ethical behavior, etc., etc..
And, in earlier versions of the race, riders dying on the road in crashes.
Has any of this changed? Is this a legit event these days? I'm not saying it isn't, I really don't know. I don't know anybody involved in running it, and I haven't personally spoken to anybody who's ridden lately.
Is it on the up and up these days?
