Solos and teams will ride as many laps of the course as possible in the 10 hours. One member of the team will ride at a time while the other members recover and prepare for their next lap. Solos will do it on their own. Go as fast as you can and try or take your time and enjoy it. It’s your call.
The course will be suitable for all abilities with forest fire roads, flowing single track and more than likely a little bit of mud and sweat thrown in.
Everyone will be allocated a pit area next to the race course so you can organise your kit, bikes, food and keep the craic going.
