SPEED PODS AND HOW THEY WORK

A ‘speed pod’ is a group of riders riding at a designated speed. The ‘pods’ will be organised based on the km speed you have estimated you will average and have submitted on your registration, so please be honest. Each rider pod (max 45 riders) will start out approx 2 mins apart. Participants wishing to ride in the same ‘pod’ we will do our best to accommodate you, but please ensure you fill in the same TEAM name for each rider on registration, and understand that you must all cycle at the same pace/speed. If you are registered as a lower/higher speed than the majority of the other team members, you will be assigned a speed pod according to your registered speed.

GOODY BAGS – Available from Wolfi’s Bike Shop

Bib number and pack collection – Packs will NOT be taken to the start line, so please ensure you collect prior to event day. ONLY International or participants living outside of Dubai can request event day pick-up upon registration.

Your pack contains your bib and other goodies (bib and stickers MUST be attached to your BACK, HELMET and BIKE during the event please).
