This is much easier to change before the event day and means less risk of any timing errors.
As this is not part of a series for this race only we are using your age on race day so please double check you are in the correct group
1.0 I understand that:
1.1 Participating in this activity is potentially hazardous.
1.2 The risks involved include but are not limited too, falls, contact with other participants, effects of weather and trail conditions (and could result in injury, or death, loss or damage to property):
1.3 I will only participate if I am medically able.
1.4 I must have bar end caps on my bars or I will not be allowed to ride
1.5 Go Pros are allowed and must be secured safety \
1.6 E-Bike policy – E-bikes are permitted but must be Turned Off, anyone found with an e bike on either during practice or the race runs will be disqualified immediately.
1.7 – Practice policy – 2 runs minimum & full runs only. Anyone found cutting in on the track during practice will be penalised with a time penalty on their race run! It is not fair to those that are looking to get a full practice run in but ends up coming up behind someone who has cut in halfway.
1.8 – Practice start time gaps. We will be using a common sense approach to how often we set people off in practice. Aiming for every 15 seconds but groups trains are allowed for practice and slower riders will be allowed to set off sooner if it is obvious they will not catch up with the rider in front. Provided everyone abides by the start ramp marshals instruction all should have time for at least 2 or 3 runs in the morning before the race.
1.9 Parking and Car Sharing. When possible we please encourage as much car sharing as possible. We have not been able to secure the use of the site car park for the general public as we have done previously so all racers will need to use the two main car parks and peddle up to the race village. It is going to be very tight on space, there will be car parking marshals and it is imperative you follow their instruction on the day to fit everyone! It will be mirror to mirror for sure so please play ball!
2.0 Acceptance of Risk – You are about to take part in a high risk activity. You will minimise this risk by following the safety rules and advice in the B1KEPARK ESSENTIALS. If you do not follow the safety rules and advice you could have a serious accident which could be fatal.
