Two Person Team vs Solo

Solo participants race on their own for the duration of Crank The Shield. Two person team participants must ride together within 2 minutes of each other and finish within 2 minutes of each other. The advantages of working as a team include moral and technical support with many stage events originally only having this two-person component. If you find an evenly matched friend, or don’t feel like getting caught riding alone on the course, maybe the two person division is for you.
