I see three plausible scenarios for SKINS employee Michael Spheinchter:
1. He was in on the con from the very beginning, and was promised a payout from RY. It would be easy to keep this from his managers.
2. He's young and impressionable. During the early days of the run there was some sharing of sausage, and RY and Dustbin then blackmailed him: participate in our scam or we'll show the world these pictures of your bratwurst. The Brits would have obviously planned this in advance. It may even be their standard procedure for these long events.
3. The con goes all the way to the top of SKINS, and Michael was simply the fall guy for if something went wrong. In which case he'd probably be given a year's severance pay or some such to keep quiet about it.
Occam's Razor suggests that number 1 is the most likely. But these chaps have long proven that they're not afraid of bizarre scenarios.
4) RV rides were done while Mike slept. Witness records could help clarify this.[/quote]
Number 4 could have been the case. Rob starts a run behind the RV at night while Mike sleeps. Rob climbs on the ladder/roof/rides the bike for x number of hours. When the RV stops it's a sign that Mike is awake so Rob gets off, walks back a bit then starts running/walking again. Could explain the button hooks on strava.
