DUO TEAMS

  • Duo teams are meant to ride together during the stage.

  • Teams time will be taken by combining the two racers' times together.

  • If team members finish more than three minutes apart, there will be a one-hour time penalty added to their stage time.

WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE OPTION?

 

It’s a fair question. Something so easy and fun to do shouldn’t be so hard to explain.

  • This is a non-competitive category (meaning you are not competing for daily or GC awards).

  • Groups can be as few as 1 rider, or as many as 10+ and any number in between.

  • Experience members do not have to ride together during the stage like a duo team.  Go at your own pace, or ride together and have even more fun that way.

  • Since this is a non-competitive category, you do not have to ride everyday if you do not want too.  Maybe you have to work one day, or decide four days is too much and want to sit out one day, etc.

  • If you finish all four stages, you will receive a finisher award just like the competitive categories.

  • Basically, the Experience option is a great way to save some cash and still experience the event like everyone else.  Less stress and still all the epic fun.  Think of it as a ride, compared to a race.
