THE ROUTE IS VERY COMPLEX AND IF YOU DON’T PREPARE YOU WILL GO WRONG! We do our best to mark the course in advance of the race and you do not need any special navigation skills, but you can not rely solely on the markings – they get removed or washed away, and you MUST bring a copy of your map. It is well worth at least spending an hour or so familiarising yourself with the main turns, but if you want to be sure, we recommend you use a GPS.
Difficulty: Each stage is rated 1 – 10, 10 being most difficult. Stages 4, 5, 16, 18 and 19 are the toughest and times in these count towards the Kings (and Queens) Of The Mountains awards.
Cut-off time: if you are outside this time (or you miss the stage), we will record your time as the cutoff time. You are welcome to finish your stage and your result will be included.
