INTRODUCTION

You must race one round at the main route. Hereafter it is up to you how much you will race for the next 6, 12 or 24 hours.

All participants have to run through a scan-in/scan-out area after each round. That way your amount of kilometres will be registered. It is of course possible to keep you pace due this area.

PAIR AND TEAM

A Pair consists of 2 riders.

A Team consists of 3 to 4 riders.

Each rider, from the pair or tema, must race one round at the daily route. Hereafter is is free how they share the rest of the time. 

Pair- and team race are raced as a stafet. That means that each pair/team can only have one rider at the route at a time.

When you change rider, it takes place in the scan-in/scan-out area. Meaning the next rider may race out through the scan area when the previous rider has been scanned into the scan area. The active chip must be handed over to the next rider.

All participants must go through the scan area for each lap to register the kilometers traveled.
