You might’ve wondered why I mentioned honesty earlier on in this post. That’s because of this man, in ten years the Superenduro have never had anyone admitting to breaking the rules. Matteo Raimondi had a puncture on stage one, and he fell of the course and joined slightly lower down. With a broken tyre, he replaced it. He then went to the organisers and admitted to two disqualify-able offences, changing his tyre outside of the time check and cutting the course. He was ultimately DSQ’d for the course cutting, but due to the wording of the rules he didn’t break any changing his tyre, the organisers have told me they’re going to update the rules. The most important thing to learn from this though, Matteo was the current overall leader and admitted to two offences that he was fully aware he’d be DSQ’d for.
