Please ensure you have read each of these Detailed Briefings. It is important you understand the details of the course (links are on the main event page), and your responsibility as a rider. Maps of each course will be available in the hall.
Time Trial rules: Time Trial rules apply for the Prologue. No drafting i.e. when a rider catches another, the rider caught may not lead the rider behind, and the rider behind must not follow directly behind in the slipstream of the rider ahead. 2m sideways gap is required when passing, only if it is safe to do so. When the rider behind passes, the rider who has been caught must not follow behind in their slipstream. Within a kilometre the rider who has been caught must drop back to at least 25m behind the rider now in front.
