In the race village
A selection of basic spares and tools are available from Cycle Lab, as well as mechanics to assist with any basic setup, repairs will be made only on clean bikes. Make sure you carry any bike specific parts yourself, including derailleur hangers and brake pads.
The bike check up on the route and post event is free, but all parts and additional labour will be charged at standard retail rates. Please ensure to carry a credit card, alternatively we could charge this to your room account for any additional charges.
Full bike services are available in the race village at the Cycle Lab Tech Zone.
Once you cross the finish line, CycleLab will immediately take your bike to the bike wash and park it safely in the bike park. Mud Buster provides bio-degradable cleaning agents to help you keep your bike clean throughout the race. The crew who wash your bikes are specially trained to use high pressure hoses, and do not spray directly into the parts that contain bearings or seals.
There is a bike park with 10-hour manned security in which your bike is safely stored in number sequence. Only riders are allowed access in and out of the bike park, so you must fetch your own bike should it require a service. The bike park in each race village is normally a fenced tennis court, and is therefore uncovered in the event of rain.
Riders'nutrition, water, isotonic carbohydrate drinks and snacks will be available at refuel points during the race.
There are generally 3 water points per stage, two on the race route and one at the finish. Each water point will serve chilled water, USN, Coke and a selection of other goodies. The water is chilled so you will have cool water and energy drinks. Each morning at breakfast you can make sandwiches to carry for the ride. Participants are advised to carry two water bottles at all times.
