This will be the 2nd year that I've ridden in the DGR ó both years in the Orange County California ride. Last year I ended up in 4th place on the OC fundraising leaderboard. This year I'm in 2nd place with a pretty good chance of staying there.
Last year we had more than 500 riders registered, but quite a few of 'em didn't even sponsor themselves. The ride itself was almost unmanageable due to it's size, so this year they did put a $25 minimum to register (same for the Los Angeles ride) and there are significantly fewer registered riders this year.
As far as I know, they only did this for rides that were getting too large. The ride organizer admits that there's no way to separate the registered from the unregistered riders on ride day, though.
The photo below is from last year's ride. From left to right is JC (co-founder of the Movember Foundation), 1st place, 3rd place, and 4th place on the leaderboard which means that's me on the right. 2nd place either wasn't there or didn't want to be in the photo.
