Questions and Answers to the basics

Does a team need to be racing bikes on the course of the whole race event time?

No, you may be off course once you complete a full lap during the race event.

How do we change riders?

the rider on course approaches the "transition area" another team member is already in place in the "transition area". once the current rider on course crosses the lap line the next team member must then have physical contact with their teammate and then may start their lap or laps.

Do you need to switch team members after each lap?
no, you may have team members ride multiple laps.

Who wins?

The team with the most laps wins. You may enter a new lap as long as the time has not run out, teams on the course when the time ends must finish that lap for it to count towards their total.  All final lap competitors must be on the course competing by the time your event time expires. ie all 6-hour racers with an unfinished lap must be on the course competing by 4 pm.  THIS IS A CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS.  ASK QUESTIONS IF NEEDED ON FINISHING RULES.

Can we camp on-site?
Limited campsites are available for FREE for the weekend to participating teams and their support crews.  This is for both Friday and Saturday nights.  All campsites must be cleaned up when done.  Options for camping Sunday night are available upon request for no additional charge.

We have designated solo team areas directly adjacent to the course as well as a motorized RV camping area (or campers using generators ) and tent camping areas. Quiet hours are after 11 pm on Friday and after midnight till 7 am on Saturday-Sunday.
