2019 IBR Details best site?

Can anyone suggest the best web site for "viewing the rally? Looks like it starts in about a week, Monday, June 17th.

How about the official 2019 Iron Butt Rally webpage?

That's where the IBR Daily Reports, written by IBR veteran John Harrison, will be posted.

From Lisa Landry, Rally Master and IBR Mom extraordinaire:

We love spectators and the energy they bring to event, not to mention the
support offered to riders. We ask that you park away from the designated
rider area and be sure to leave space for riders to easily access the hotel
from the parking lot, especially as we get into penalty minutes.

Thanks and hope to see you soon!


All Start and Finish activities will be at:

Greenville Marriott
One Parkway East
Greenville, South Carolina 29615

CHECK IN WEEKEND
Saturday, June 15
Sunday, June 16

RALLY START
Monday, June 17
Motorcycle Impound 8am
Rally Start 10am

Note that riders will start arriving as soon as Wednesday, in order to finish those last few items and have some precious down time before the madness starts.


Both checkpoints will be at:

Hilton Garden Inn Tri-Cities Kennewick
701 North Young Street
Kennewick, Washington, 99336

CHECKPOINT 1 INFORMATION
Thursday, June 20, 8pm

CHECKPOINT 2 INFORMATION
Sunday, June 23, 8pm

Note that 8 PM is the start of penalty points, so riders will be arriving all day long to get an early start on scoring and necessary bike maintenance.

FINISH - Friday, June 28, 10 am

Finishers' Banquet 6:30pm - Sold Out

As Lisa has said, spectators are welcome, but do be respectful to the riders. They're on a tight schedule, and likely quite stressed out. If you are mechanically inclined and wish to offer assistance with tire changes and basic maintenance that can be appreciated, but again, be respectful to the riders.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from . . .

Checkpoints are in my hometown. Maybe something to do with Matt Watkins and Dale Wilson.

In the past there was a map that showed the location of all riders and was updated pretty often. Will that map be located on that site too?

My guess is they will release the public password once the riders have all gathered at the start.
