What Do I do if I break down on the bike Course?  We will have a Sag vehicle that will be on the course.  Step to the side of the road and tell a course marshal of law officer that you need a ride.  If you accept mechanical support help during the event you will be DQ'ed. Be prepared to repair your own bike to ensure placement in the race results.  It may take 20-30 minutes or more for the sag support vehicle to arrive to your location.

Timing:  all our multisport events use chip timing.  You will be provided a timing chip with a velcro strap.  This chip using the provided strap is to be placed around your left ankle.  These chips are expensive, replacement cost is $30.  The Athlete will be responsible for replacement if lost. 

Transition Area etiquette:  Only Athletes are allowed in the transition.  This is considered a secure area.  No friends or relatives permitted to enter the transition area.

Bike removal for the transition area after the event:  The Race director will be the one that announces when the transition area will open for equipment removal.   Normally we will open the transition once the final biker re-racks their bike.

I am unable to make the race can I get a refund?:  It is clearly stated in all of our materials, there will be NO REFUNDS.

I gave my entry to a friend, because I was not able to race, is this ok?:  Absolutely Not. If someone else races under your name and is injured, or causes an accident, that person will not be covered by any protection typically afforded to an athlete through the event insurance. Additionally, if the athlete racing in your name causes injury or damage, you may be liable in part or full for those damages.
