Solo and E Bikes: Riders in the Solo categories are to compete by themselves for the duration of the event. It is recommended that these riders have a support crew of at least one person located at the event hub. Riders will compete with the objective to achieve as many laps as possible over the 6-hour timeframe. Once the 6-hour timeframe expires, the first rider with the most laps to cross the finish line will win the category.

Pairs and E bikes: Riders in the Pairs categories compete as a duo with only one rider from the pair on the course at a time. Riders share laps during the event by ‘tagging’ each other in the change-over area at the event hub. Once the 6-hour timeframe expires, the Pair with the most laps who cross the finish line will win the category.

Teams and E bikes:
Riders in the Teams categories compete as a group with only one rider from the team on the course at a time. Riders share laps during the event by ‘tagging’ each other in the change-over area at the event hub. Once the 6-hour timeframe expires, the Team with the most laps who cross the finish line will win the category. Teams can be comprised of either 3 or 4 riders. Mixed Teams and non-Mixed teams will compete against each other. Depending on the number of entries it is likely that Teams of 3 and Teams of 4 will compete against each other in one category called ‘Teams’. The final plan for Teams will be communicated at the start of the event.
