Should I tip the support crew?

Should I tip the support crew?

The support team wakes up before you and checks tyre pressures, fill petrol tanks and warm your bike up. They follow us throughout the day and fix your bike in a jiffy if there are any problems. At the end of the day, while you’re enjoy a refreshing frosty treat, they are getting your bike back to tip top condition, sometimes well into the night.

We’d suggest each rider tip the support crew US$100. It’ll be collected and handed to the senior crew member at the final celebration dinner to be distributed amongst the mechanics and backup team.  There are usually 4+ people in the support team, so you’re effectively tipping each crew member less than $2 a day. Frankly, that’s a bargain!
