FAQ's

Does a team need to be racing bikes on the course 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" while 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 begin their lap(s).

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. You (solo) or your team must race at least the time length of the event. See example below.

12 hour event ending at 10 pm. The team rider representing the team must cross the finish/lap line after 10:00 pm, crossing the finish line at 9:59:59 would mean you/they did not complete the 12 hour race and to be counted as completing the event you/they would need to do an additional lap. Failure to compete for the entire race time will result in DNF (did not finish status for results).

Please be very clear on this finishing rule. If you have any questions, please get them cleared up before you start the event.

Can we camp on site?
Camp sites 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 before leaving.

Can we drink beer?

When can we get a camp site?
12:00 pm on Friday of race weekend. Prior to that the entrance to the parking and camping areas will be blocked off to participants, spectators, and support crews. Once the gate is open we will have parking attendants to guide you to your camping area based on your team size. If you want to hang out next to people and other specific teams, show up together, then you can park together. One vehicle per site.

(Example: one tent, one car, one rv or trailer, no car) extra vehicles will need to be parked in the main parking area. Then onto the road as things fill up. FREE to participants. These are numbered sites in both solo and group camping areas.

How many teams place and get awards?
Based on the number of teams participating and registered in a category will determine the number of teams that will be able to receive medals during the awards ceremony. See the rules and regulations page for complete details.
