- Course Description, Transition Zone, and Control Point
It is a 6.2-kilometer loop course consisting of single track and asphalt roads marked by the use of directional signs such as arrows, buntings, and traffic cones. There are sections throughout the course where there are no markings and no decision points either–so just keep riding. At the end of each lap, the course passes through Transition Zone (TZ).
TZ is the only area where you can exit the race course. This is also where teams swap riders and hand over the band. Spectators are not permitted at the TZ. To make the race easier for everyone, here are some simple rules to remember: a) Walk, walk, walk … there is no riding at the TZ; b) Call out your number to the timing crew to record your lap; c) Help your teammate with the transition; and, d) after you have completed the transition, VERY promptly clear the area and move outside the TZ to catch your breath, have a chat or warm down.
There will be at least one control point on the course, which will be manned for 24 hours, with radio contact with the Race Head Quarters, and where race numbers will be checked. Each rider is given an individual race number and said number must be attached to the seatpost of the bike. In order for your lap to be timed and counted, please ensure that your race number is visible. Do not deface or trim the race number. Call out your race number to the control point team. Additional spot checkpoints may be positioned at random locations.
