Start Times

 

START PROCEDURE

Riders will start in four separate groups according to the distance they have chosen. Within these start groups, riders will not be broken up into age groups, (as in previous years) but will be required to self seed themselves within the following groups:

  1.  The pointy end – fast & hoping to podium

2.  Middle

3.  Weekend warrior – relaxed pace

All riders will marshal at the appointed area (see map and schedule below). All riders will ride over the timing map and complete the “start lap” (about 1.2KM) before heading over the timing mat again and then down to the single track to commence the 25KM loop.
