One singularity is that the team is made of two people that have to ride together within a time allotted. Otherwise, they will get a time penalty.
The ranking will be made with the time of the second member who crosses the finish line every day. The addition of times on each stage establishes the general ranking. This concept is a surplus in endurance races, stimulating team spirit. Effort management and risk assessment are also important factors in this kind of stage race.
This competition offers the best services for the performance and comfort of participants and also itineraries of
genuine mountain bike.
The structure of this Race will provide everything that is necessary from water, food, accommodation, technical support while riders care only about their passion, RIDING A BIKE!
