Drafting is forbidden; any riders not obeying this rule will be disqualified.

This “for fun” and non-official World Championship 4-person national team relay event on Friday 16 September is open to all athletes who are registered for the time trial and/or Gran Fondo/Medio Fondo. The course is inside the new quartier “Le Albere,” with each team member completing 3 laps of a 2km circuit, before passing the relay to the next rider of the team. A maximum of 25 teams will be allowed to race. Medals will be awarded.

GRAN FONDO AND MEDIO FONDO

Sunday 18 September will start with the 143.8km (+3900m) gran fondo categories, followed by the 86.8km 2(+2218m) medio fondo categories. Starting pens will be open 30 minutes before the start of each category. The first row of each start group is reserved for the age group winners of the qualifier events and defending world champions, who will be able to access the first row from the sidewalk 7 minutes before their respective start.

The course will be completely closed to traffic starting from behind the “first lead” vehicle, until the last “end of race” broom wagon vehicle, approximately a one hour gap. Riders falling behind the broom wagon will not be riding on a closed course and must obey all traffic laws.
