REGISTERING YOUR TEAM
On the day there will be a separate registration desk for teams. All riders must bring their current licence. No licence, no ride. 3 race permits or day permits can be purchased from the registration desk on the day if necessary.
If you are racing in normal graded racing AND the TTT:
– Register and pay to race in your grade at the normal reg desk first
– Go to the teams reg desk and register your race number on your team sheet.
– You retain the same race number for both events and your race entry covers both events.
If you are ONLY racing in the TTT:
– Go to the Teams reg desk and pay your race entry and get your race number
– Register your race number on your team sheet.
