Unfortunately, your team would be out of the competition. Building a big team has its advantages as competitors do not get as tired and are more likely to make the allotted time later in the race. The risk is that an early competitor could not make the allotted time and the team could be out of the race before all competitors on the team get to complete a lap.

Support crews are not required but to compete in the solo or 2-person race without at least 1 crew member will be very difficult and is not recommended. If you come in from a lap without at least 5 minutes to spare, it will be impossible to reload on water, food, etc and get back into the starting corral before the next lap starts.
Your support crew can only give assistance while you are in the starting corral. They can hand you anything and receive anything from you (food, water bottles, change of clothes, etc) including changing bicycles while you are in the starting corral. Your support crew cannot provide any assistance on the course.

Gravel grinders can ride just about any kind of bike. Mountain bikers must ride mountain bikes. All bicycles must be completely human-powered, no E bikes or pedal-assist is allowed.
Racers can only draft other registered racers. Drafting other vehicles or a non-registered racer is grounds for disqualification.
Racers should be very vocal when preparing to pass another racer. “PASSING ON YOUR LEFT!” (Or Right, whichever is applicable) should be called out. It is the responsibility of the challenging racer to overtake the slower racer safely. Racers being passed should yield the trail on the first command or as soon as is safely possible. When two racers are vying for position, the leading racer does not have to yield position to the challenging racer. However, a racer may not bodily interfere with the intent to impede another racer’s progress. Racers riding bicycles have the right of way over racers pushing bicycles. When practical, racers pushing or carrying their bikes should stay on the least ridable portion of the trail when being passed.
Riders should be prepared to repair their bicycles or fix a flat on the course. Riders should carry a patch kit, spare tubes, tire levers, a pump or CO2 and any other tools such as a chain repair tool that they may feel is necessary. If your bicycle is unrepairable you will need to run the complete course (no short cutting) with your bicycle and finish the lap within the allotted time or you and your team will be out of the competition. You must be completely in the starting corral with your bicycle before the next lap starts.
Yes, you can have multiple bikes and trade them out once you are in the starting corral. You and the bike you rode on the lap must be completely in the corral before the start of the next lap. At that point you can trade out bikes while in the corral.
