ROLLING CLOSURES:

During a “Rolling Closure”, vehicle traffic will be stopped and controlled by course officials and/or law enforcement to ensure rider safety and to keep the peloton moving swiftly. Once the peloton has passed through, the intersection will re-open to vehicle traffic. Rolling Closures are estimated to take no more than 10 minutes at each intersection. Riders riding behind the peloton must obey all rules of the road, as there will be no Rolling Closures in place.

The following intersections will feature Rolling Closures for peloton riders only:

CUT-OFF TIMES:

For safety reasons, 100 mile riders who have not made it to mile 53.4 by 1:00 PM (4.5 hours after the official start) will not be allowed to continue on the 100- mile course and will be diverted to the 60- mile course back to Lake Davis. Riders that are diverted to the 60- mile course will not be eligible for placing/prizing in the 60 mile event.

Riders may also be prevented from continuing on the course at the 53.4- mile checkpoint if one of the certified EMT’s judge the rider as being incapable of continuing.
Riders who are not capable of getting back to either the start or finish areas under their own power will be transported by an event “sag” vehicle.

Course officials reserve the right to remove and “DNF” any rider from the event that is deemed incapable of safely finishing the course for any reason.

If you do not make the cut-off time or are unable for any reason to finish, please DO NOT go through the finish line as it will foul-up our results!
