Starting Order

Riders will start one at a time every 30 seconds. The first days start order will be decided by the prologue results. The second days race order will be determined by the results from day 1.


Each day riders will pass through four checkpoints per day where their times will be taken. Checkpoints will be a maximum of 45kms apart. When riders reach the main fuel stop, they will have a compulsory 20 min break. This will be about halfway through the day. The lunch break check point is the only checkpoint that your service crew can get to.

Track Marking

Each rider will have to provide their own GPS that the organiser will upload each days track on. Riders will follow the track on their GPS from the start to the finish each day. Also the track will be marked with bunting tape that will be hanging from trees etc to indicate the track direction. There will also be signs to indicate grade direction and signs for speed restrictions.


Only Garmin GPS units will be accepted by the organiser except forEtrex 10s. We will not be accepting Etrex10s this year as they don’t have the memory required. If you are unsure please give us a call.
Riders must have their GPS unit set on track and record setting so at the end of each day the organisers will look at your GPS to make sure that you have done all of the course and obeyed all speed restrictions. When presenting your GPS at sign in please make sure it has new batteries and is turned on. All riders must supply their own new batteries for the second days racing. If you are new to GPS navigating, guidance and training will be available at sign on and prologue.
You are best to familiarise yourself with your GPS unit prior to the event start.
