Can they tape my gears when I take a bike event on the APFT?

Can a scorer tape my gears when I take a bike event for the APFT?

The Evaluator - Army Evaluation & Counseling Guide

Yes. If a multi-speed bike is used, the event supervisor and/or scorer will take measures to ensure that only one speed is used during the
event. This can be accomplished by taping the gear shifters. The Soldier taking the event sets the speed by selecting the gear they wish to ride in.

Reference FM 7-22.
