Please note: The waves will be spread-out over much longer period of time this year owing to the short multi-lap nature of the course and the fact that we have fully closed roads on the bike course. This will ensure that all participants have a safe, fair and fun experience on the day with plenty of room to ride. Details of which waves start when will be found in the pre-race report online and emailed to registered participants.
