Riders need to complete at least one lap of the prologue course on the motorcycle they are using for the rest of the event so their time can determine the starting order for the first day off road. The prologue qualifying will be held in each grade with Bronze going first, then Iron, Silver, and Gold.
The top 10 riders in each grade will be able to enter the finals. There will be three finals races Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
If riders do not complete one lap of the prologue course, they will receive a 30 min penalty and will start at the rear of the field on day one.
The Iron prologue will be a simple course with only a couple of easy obstacles to negotiate.
All motorcycles will be scrutineered on Friday at sign in from 3pm for their worthiness.
All motorcycles must have a working headlight, tail light, spark arrestor and a fire extinguisher fitted.
All motorcycles will be expected to have a fuel range of a minimum of 55km.
Riders will be supplied with a race number for their bikes which must be fitted before scrutineering.
Please note; bikes that do not have a proper headlight unit will not be able to start.
It is up to riders to get their own fuel to the main fuel dump (Lunch stop) each day. Use family, friends or team up with other riders to make it easier.
Also, riders will have to supply one full 20 litre fuel container each that we can take to the remote fuel stop for them each day (unserviced stop). Riders will pass through the remote fuel stop twice and go to the main fuel/lunchstop once.
Directions will be supplied at the first riders briefing of the location of the main fuel check point.
Helpers and spectators will not be allowed to the remote fuel stop.
Environmental mat must be used at each fuel stop under each bike to catch any spilt fuel/oils. (Absorbent material e.g. carpet etc)
Each day will have an advanced paramedic and ambulance based at the main fuel stop. Out on the course there will be mobile first aiders on motorcycles and in vehicles.
Riders are expected to carry the following equipment to ensure their safety and the safety of others.
Survival Kits will be checked at sign in and also throughout the event.
Each day riders will have to follow the course on their GPS and pass through check points
Failure to do this will incur time and exclusion penalties.
We will be very hard on speeding as there are many people out and about in the forest which can be very hazardous.
