Are there any aid stations on the Bike Course?
Only at the X-50 so please come to the race with a full water bottles. There will be water available for filling up your water bottle in the Transition area.
Will there be Bike Techs available for assistance on race day?
Yes, near the entrance to Transition Area.
If I break down on the Bike Course will there be any assistance offered?
Yes. There will be a sag vehicle (usually a large passenger van) that will be circling the course throughout the race that will pick you up and return you to the transition area. If you break down, please go to the side of the road (off the course) and inform a course marshal or policeman. They will assist you in locating the sag vehicle.
Can I use a Mountain Bike in the non-mountain bike Sprint division or in the international division?
Yes, you may use a mountain bike in the International division or in the Sprint non-mountain bike division, but not in the X-50.
Can I use a tandem or recumbent bike in the race?
Do I have to get my bike inspected?
No, but it is highly recommended. Many people experience technical problems on race day that could have been easily avoided if the bike had been inspected prior to the race. In order to avoid disappointment on race day we urge all competitors to have their bikes inspected no more than 3 weeks prior to the event.
I am a trick rider. Can I do stunts for the other athletes and the photographer while competing in the event?
Are roads open or closed for the bike course?
The roads are open to traffic. For some events we have lanes closures. Ride on the right hand side of the road on the shoulder unless instructed otherwise by a police officer or a race official. Please discourage your friends and family members from driving on the race course while the race is in progress. Do not cycle in the car lanes.
