Race Day

Before the race

Providing we get your information before we print the week’s registration list, when you arrive at the registration desk, look for your name on the list and see what number has been allocated to you. Check your details are correct and update as necessary. If you don’t pre-register, someone will get your details and allocate you a number.

Find the number and attach it securely to the front of your bike so that the timekeeper will be able to read it. Your time will be taken at the start and end of each segment.

After the race

At the end of the race leave your number in the bin provided.
