I responded to your post some 7 weeks ago in which you stated “Shutdown times for 2021 were a full 2-3 hours ahead of previous year shutdown times.”
The previous year was 2019 since there was no ride in 2020. Not 2018. I did not consider prior years as it is really a moot point 4 years past, on a different route with a different director running things.
In any case, the current director has stated they would re-evaluate the shutdown times for the current year and move forward from here.
I know both the shutdown times and availability of SAG services is under review in light of the 100+ mile day on Wednesday. So I am also looking forward to see what the logistics looks like for 2022.
