  • LEGS
    • The 160km ride will be held as 5 legs - 45, 40,35, 25 & 15km
    • The 95km ride will be held as 3 legs - 45, 35 & 15km. This will be an elevator ride, meaning you can retire at the end of the 2nd leg after 80km, or continue on to finish the 95km.
  • PRE-RIDE VETTING Friday afternoon from approx. 14:00 onwards. Also 40km riders can vet Saturday morning.
  • BRIEFINGS for long rides will be held Friday 18:00 and for short rides Saturday 09:30
  • VET-GATE-INTO-HOLD for the 160km & 95km rides. This means that your ride time doesn’t stop until you present to the vet. Don’t panic if you are unsure as the walkthrough Friday evening will clear it all up. The 40km will be normal TPR if busy.
  • BEST CONDITIONED run outs will be held at approx 08:00 Sunday morning – the top 5 in each ride in each division will be asked to present (possibility of under saddle as well).
  • PRESENTATIONS will happen at approx. 09:30 Sunday.
