The odds are stacked against us.
I asked one of the founders a series of questions about our odds of making it to Ulanbatar and Rob, one of the Mongol Rally Founders, provided the following historical information:
Let’s do the math:
350 cars begin.
¾ of 350 make it to Mongolia = 263 make it to Mongolia
2/3 of 263 make it to Ulaanbaatar = 175 vehciles/teams actually make it to the finish.
175/350 = .5
So 50% of the teams who start make it to the end.
