does that means he went off course & might have come in 1st, if he hadn't?

PR looks way off course (45 mph must be in a car)
is PF going home? (49mph, another car?)

That's when a racer gets to the finish line ... I think.

It's possible Chase lost out on first by making a wrong turn. Chase and Matthew were within 5 minutes in/out of CP1; but Chase lost over 40 minutes on Matthew getting to CP2. Chase closed that gap to roughly 30 minutes at the finish. So the two riders look evenly matched, but adding 20 miles is gonna hurt your race for the top of the podium. That said, adding 20 miles and still finishing second ... WOW.

Yes, I'm fairly sure those are racer that abandoned but still have the tracker on while getting a ride in a car.

This link is helpful for seeing all racers (with and without trackers) to see when they check in/out from checkpoints. Arrowhead 135 - 2022 Results

Updating my earlier post: Murray is riding with Justin and has her own tracker, I was just too dumb know that AM on the tracker site.

Yah- an extra 20 miles and still only half an hour behind the winner. I hope he has a sense of humor.

I took nearly 10 years since I started this thread, and last month I did it: I completed the Arrowhead 135! Here's my ride report for those that are interested in the long story: https://bikesbeersstuff.blogspot.com...ltra-year.html (I've got some formatting issues to clean up and I'm sure some more typos to fix)
