RUNNING AND RIDING AT NIGHT
All athletes are required to have a working headlight and taillight on their bike at all times while riding. The track is partially illuminated with light towers, but we still do require lights on your bike as some sections are more lit up than others. A charging station and additional lights will be available for purchase in the paddock area.
All riders will complete the first lap together as a kick off the event. This inclusion lap is led out by myTEAM TRIUMPH Captains and athletes with disabilities. Think of this as our "pace lap" for the start of the race! Timing and Scoring does not start until after the inclusion lap.
Road, triathlon, mountain, hand cycle, tandems, e-bikes, velomobiles, cruiser and fat bikes are all OK.

Timing data points are located at the bottom and top section of the hill top capture riders as the enter and exit the challenge section.
The Speed Challenge is all about SPEED and how fast you can go on the back stretch of the course before turn 5. This is a flat and fast section the really lets you drop the hammer and crank it up.
