Riders timing chips will be activated as you pass through the START GANTRY at the start of the race. If your chip is not working you will be asked to go back to the timing desk to have the chip re-activated.
Riders will be required to return to Race HQ Timing Desk after completing the event to download their stage times for their final result. Failure do so will lead to stage times not being recorded.
Riders can come back to Race HQ Timing Desk after each lap to download their times.
Once your chip has been activated do not walk down the stages because you will activate a timed run. To look at stages please keep behind the course tapes.
Once you have started a stage you must ride to the stage finish to record your time.
All stages will be taped where race organizers deem appropriate. Taping will leave suitable line choice where available, but will not allow for any significant ‘cutting’ of race track.
