Athletes are 100% responsible for completing the appropriate number of laps for their given division.
Athletes will return to their original bike rack, rack their bike, take off their helmet and prepare for the run portion of the race. All personal belongings must be located within their given designated racking area and not left anywhere else in the transition of on the course. Failure to comply could result in disqualification.
