We recommend that you get your bike fully tuned up & new tires put on 2 weeks before raceday. You’re spending countless hours training your body, then also put in some time to prepare your bike. There is no worse feeling than getting a mechanical in the race and standing on the side of the road while other riders are passing you by.
On the race course, there will be Neutral Road Support services at the aid stations and rolling mechanical assistance and broom wagons in case you cannot continue the race. You will get a wristband with a Raceday Hotline # to call for assistance as needed.
