Athletes will mount their bikes at the entrance to Fiesta Island. Then proceed counter-clockwise around the Island. Athletes complete 3 big loops of the island (each loop 4.13mi).
NOTE: Our bike course IS MARSHALED. Our Marshals WILL ENFORCE U.S.A.T. rules!
AS OUR BIKE COURSE IS VERY FAST - there are 3 key rules the Marshals will be looking for. They are:
1) NO DRAFTING. Keep plenty of space between yourself and the biker in front of you and you may NOT ride side-by-side.
2) Your helmet must be fastened at all times
3) Slower riders must stay to the RIGHT. If a rider is shouting from behind you, that means you are in the fast lane - going slower - and you need to move to the RIGHT!
Violation of these rules will lead to DISQUALIFICATION or PENALTY.
