Teams enter the field, other teams leave the field. The game remains the same.
I was in Merida in 2007 and was told that people were smuggling fuel to colombia in milk trucks via back roads. The mountain bikers all knew about it, as they saw the trucks go by every day. Four years and a lot of fuel are gone, and now it’s time to swap teams.
So goodbye some dude with a water truck. Who will replace you?
The game remains, as long as the map looks like this.
