|I know, I know...I'm really early.
But a quick question: I see the selection is a lottery at the end of February. Realistically, what are the odds of getting selected??? How many enter into the lottery?? Is there a bias against non-Colorado residents? I ask becuase I might have to sign up (and make a deposit) on several events in order to get one. Any input would be appreciated. THanks. Paul

|I have rode this ride 4 times. I do believe that I have not been selected by the lottery by the same amount. If you do get selected in this ride and wish to opt. out you have that option at a $15.00 cost. That was last year. Not sure about the odds. I here it's 50/50. But being from out of state is a plus in your favor. Tourism is big business in Colorado and this thing is a big magnet. I ended up buying a land parcel because I found paradise! Catapult|

|I have heard from a number of participants that there is a bias (however slight) towards out of state folks. I don't have the hard data but there seems to be anecdotal evidence.
Check out the archives. I believe it was jtolleson (don't quote me) who brought it up around Jan/Feb of this year. (When this year's route for RTR was announced). Good luck, you'll have a great time.
