Is it possible to ride/run the route before the race?
While it may be possible to ride some parts of the route in advance, sections of the full course are closed until mid-June for animal migration.
How far apart are the checkpoints?
The checkpoints, where you can access food and drink, are usually no more than 7 km apart.
How should I prepare my bike for the event?
Ensure that a qualified bike mechanic has properly tuned your bike. On race day it is up to you to maintain and repair your own bike. Bring a pump and any other tools you feel you may need to complete simple repairs (spare tube, CO2, mini-tool).
