Mandatory Equipment

Mandatory equipment will be checked and signed off at race registration on Friday the 26th of August. Please bring all mandatory equipment to gear check, except for equipment that is provided by the organisers. All equipment must be in excellent working condition, show no visible signs of excessive wear and tear and be correctly sized for the competitor.
Bike spares and tools are a mandatory requirement. All teams need carry items to fix a puncture, mend a broken chain and perform any fixes required as there will be no assistance on the course to deal with ‘mechanicals’.
