Starting with number 1 and increasing in order by bib number. It is VERY IMPORTANT to stay in order for the start. Your transition area position will be the same, in BIB ORDER ONLY. The rows will be marked accordingly by number starting with 1-50 and moving on from there. You MUST have your bike in the correct area or you will receive a penalty. This is in order to retain the proper flow through the event day.

The transition area will open at 6:15 a.m. to the athletes. Wristbands are required for entrance into the transition area. Bikes should be racked according to your BIB NUMBER which will be marked on either end of the bike racks. Bikes must be racked by their seats and should alternate on either side of the rack, fitting 7 bikes per rack. Security will be checking wristbands prior to and after the race to ensure that only racers enter the transition area.
Please place you bike in the correct location. It is VERY important to be racked in BIB ORDER, not with just anyone. The flow of the transition area is dependent on this. Bikes racked in the wrong location could be disqualified.
Saturday Bike Drop Off Available to Save Time
We will be recommending athletes to bring their bike on Saturday afternoon to the transition area and set it up on Saturday for ease on Sunday logistics. The other most popular option is to park in J & K Lots on Sunday morning and grab your gear and bike and ride to the transition area. It is a ONE MILE walk/ride from the parking area on Sunday, and the bike drop off area will be VERY BUSY. You may Only bring your bike on Sunday morning if you choose and paid for Race Day packet Pick up.

We will have bus transportation on Race Morning only back and forth from the parking area and the transition area for spectators and athletes. This will be available in the morning starting at 5:00AM until 7AM. NO BIKES ALLOWED ON BUS. Please plan accordingly. There will be no bus transport after the event starts.
First Aid & Police
First Aid squads will be located at the transition area. All staff members and volunteers will be given the phone number to the ambulance rigs that are stationed at the race. In the case of an emergency, please do not call 911, but instead locate a race staff member or volunteer for immediate response from our designated medical staff. Police officers will be stationed on the bike course to help with safety for athletes on roads because they will not be closed off to traffic.
There will be a bike mechanic available and roaming the course throughout the race. If you have a flat tire or need assistance due to a bike malfunction, please find a staff member or volunteer who can call the mechanic to come help you.
